# One Sample Test of Means (Sample)

The one sample test of means compares an unknown mean, $$\mu$$, to a fixed value, $$\mu_0$$.

The statistical test used for this set of hypotheses can be a $$t$$-test or a $$z$$-test, depending on if the standard deviation is a known value or estimated from the sample.

## Power Calculation Explanation

Solve For
The unknown you are interested in solving for.
N
The sample size used to test the hypothesis.
Alpha
The $$\alpha$$ (Type I error rate) level of the hypothesis test.
Power
The power (1 - Type II error rate) of the hypothesis test.
Alternative Mean $$\mu$$
The mean of the sample.
Null Mean $$\mu_0$$
The mean against which the alternative is compared to.
Standard Deviation
The standard deviation of the sample.
Known Standard Deviation
If the standard deviation is known or estimated (usually it is estimated).
Margin
The margin is a value the effect size needs to exceed to be meaningful. For hypotheses of equivalence, the margin must be greater than 0, or the calculation will not be solvable. For one sided tests, a margin is less than 0 implies a non-inferiority hypothesis. Otherwise, a superiority hypothesis is implied. Read More
Hypothesis
There are three types of hypotheses that can be tested: two-sided, one-sided and equivalence. Tests of equivalence must include a margin if the unknown and null means are equal. Read More
