Comparison of two means - the t-test

One of the most commonly used statistical techniques is the comparison of two means, also known as the t-test (for this you need quantitative, or interval level data). If you used the same data to compare means with equal sample sizes, how would the results compare if you used the paired sample, independent sample equal varianc
