Abstract

Guenther derived a simple formula for the accurate computation of equal sample sizes when the two-sample t-test with pooled variance estimate is used. In the present paper, the Guenther formula is generalized to the case of unequal sample sizes. In addition, the case of unequal variances is considered.
