I have a small data set:
Small Large 11.834 7.7951 12.23 8.7618 11.972 8.8966 12.11 9.7235 8.2571
I would like to perform a t-test. The data represents the lower development threshold "Temperature" for a fly species grown on small and large carcasses.
Am I correct in thinking a paired, two tail t-test should be used in this situation?
Also, will the unbalanced samples affect the result?
