t_test(x, ...)

## Default S3 method:
t_test(x, y = NULL, alternative = c("two.sided", "less",
  "greater"), mu = 0, paired = FALSE, var.equal = FALSE,
  conf.level = 0.95, ...)

## S3 method for class 'formula'
t_test(formula, data, subset, na.action, ...)

Arguments

x

a (non-empty) numeric vector of data values.

...

further arguments to be passed to or from methods.

y

an optional (non-empty) numeric vector of data values.

alternative

a character string specifying the alternative hypothesis, must be one of "two.sided" (default), "greater" or "less". You can specify just the initial letter.

mu

a number indicating the true value of the mean (or difference in means if you are performing a two sample test).

paired

a logical indicating whether you want a paired t-test.

var.equal

a logical variable indicating whether to treat the two variances as being equal. If TRUE then the pooled variance is used to estimate the variance otherwise the Welch (or Satterthwaite) approximation to the degrees of freedom is used.

conf.level

confidence level of the interval.

formula

a formula of the form lhs ~ rhs where lhs is a numeric variable giving the data values and rhs a factor with two levels giving the corresponding groups.

data

an optional matrix or data frame (or similar: see model.frame) containing the variables in the formula formula. By default the variables are taken from environment(formula).

subset

an optional vector specifying a subset of observations to be used.

na.action

a function which indicates what should happen when the data contain NAs. Defaults to getOption("na.action").
