Answer:

Rational functions have a domain of the entire real number set except for those values that make the denominator equal to zero. Solving for $$x - 4 = 0$$, we get $$x = 4$$. Thus the domain of the function is $$(- \infty, 4) \cup (4, \infty)$$.

Question:

When would it be appropriate to use the Normal distribution as an approximation to the t-distribution?

Inactive

Answer:

Because the t-distribution converges to the Normal distribution with a high enough degrees of freedom, it's appropriate to use the Normal distribution approximation when the sample size is greater than 30.
