# PHP | stats_stat_independent_t() Function

Hello folks! welcome back to a new edition of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the PHP stats_stat_independent_t() function.

The built-in PHP stats_stat_independent_t() function is used to return the t-value from the independent two-sample t-test.

## Syntax

Following below is the syntax to use this function -

`float stats_stat_independent_t( array \$arr1, array \$arr2 )`

## Parameter Details

Sr.NoParameterDescription
1

arr1

The first set of values

2

arr2

The second set of values

## Return Value

This built-in function returns the t-value of the independent two-sample t-test between arr1 and arr2, or false on failure.

## Dependencies

This built-in function was first introduced in statistics extension (PHP version 4.0.0 and PEAR v1.4.0). In this tutorial guide, we used the latest release of stats-2.0.3 (PHP v7.0.0 or newer and PEAR version 1.4.0 or newer).

### Example1

In the below example, we have compute the t-value of the independent two-sample t-test between two arrays -

```<?php
var_dump(round(stats_stat_independent_t(array(1, 2), array(1, 2)), 8));
?>```

#### Output

When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

`float(0)`

### Example2

In the below example, we have compute the t-value of the independent two-sample t-test between two arrays -

```<?php
var_dump(round(stats_stat_independent_t(array(1, 2), array(2, 3)), 8));
?>```

#### Output

When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

`float(-1.41421356)`

### Example3

The following is an error case. In the below example, we have passed the length of arr1 < 2. A warning is shown in logs -

```<?php
// error cases
var_dump(stats_stat_independent_t(array(1), array(1, 2)));
?>```

#### Output

The above code will produce the following result and a warning in logs PHP Warning: stats_stat_independent_t(): Each argument should have more than one element.

`float(2)`

### Example4

The following is an error case. In the below example, we have passed the length of arr2 < 2. A warning is shown in logs -

```<?php
// error cases
var_dump(stats_stat_independent_t(array(1, 2), array(1)));
?>```

#### Output

The above code will produce the following result and a warning in logs PHP Warning: stats_stat_independent_t(): Each argument should have more than one element.

`bool(false)`
