Question

Table IV in Appendix A contains degrees of freedom from 1 to 75 consecutively but then contains only selected degrees of freedom.

a. Why couldn’t we provide entries for all possible degrees of freedom?
b. Why did we construct the table so that consecutive entries appear for smaller degrees of freedom but that only selected entries occur for larger degrees of freedom?
c. If you had only Table IV, what value would you use for t0.05 with df = 87? with df = 125? with df = 650? with df = 3000? Explain your answers.
