Hi there,

I'm trying to teach myself statistics from a book but I don't understand when I have to use t test and when chi squares. I tried to look it up on google but I still don't get it!

To what I understood, you use BOTH for determining if there's a difference between groups and if this difference just occured by chance or not. I hope this is right.

But what is the difference/when to I use each?

If you have any clue, please help me (but explain it for "dummies" or beginners)

Thank you!!
