### :: Testing Mean with known Variance - Sample Size - Free Statistics Software (Calculator) ::

All rights reserved. The non-commercial (academic) use of this software is free of charge. The only thing that is asked in return is to cite this software when results are used in publications.

This free online software (calculator) computes the sample size for the one-sided hypothesis test about the mean, given a user-defined type I and II error. In this test it is assumed that the population variance is known.
