# The value of T is not in the confidence interval

I performed a t-test for two independent samples. But the value of T that the test returns (2.9552) is not within the confidence interval that the test generates ( 0.4772928 2.4227072).
Does anyone know why this happens?
Can it be fixed?

t.test(Oan, Ofa, alternative = "two.sided", var.equal = FALSE)

``````Welch Two Sample t-test
``````

data: Oan and Ofa
t = 2.9552, df = 106.73, p-value = 0.003846
alternative hypothesis: true difference in means is not equal to 0
95 percent confidence interval:
0.4772928 2.4227072
sample estimates:
mean of x mean of y
4.30 2.85

The t- isn't supposed to be inside the confidence interval. The t- is the ratio of the difference in means to the standard error of the difference in means, so the scale is completely different from the scale of the confidence interval.
