Z score for independent samples with unknown and different variances?
If the sample is big enough, couldn't we just circumvent the calculation for DF by using instead a Z statistic, given that the standard error here is calculated with sample variance?

Actually, we can use the z-distribution for large samples where only the sample variance is available. We can do that because of the characteristics of the t-distribution. It approaches the z-distribution as the sample size gets larger. Notice the last row values in the t-table. They are exactly the z-values at a given probability.

how to include both the interval start and end in the axis's name??? any help!!
Why the way of calculating STD error and STD error of difference is different?
