- FACTS ABOUT THE t DISTRIBUTION:
- 1. The pdf is symmetric about 0.
- 2. The shape of the pdf is similar to that of the standard normal pdf except it is a bit flatter so that its tails are a bit thicker.
- 3. As ! 1, the pdf of the t distribution tends to the pdf of the standard normal distribution.
