For example, two mean bond strengths between tooth surface and resin cement may be compared using the parametric Student's t test when independent groups are subjected to the comparison under the assumptions of normal distribution and equal variances or standard deviation.
In a condition of unequal variances we may apply the Welch's t test as an adaptation of the t test. As the nature and specific shape of distributions are predetermined by the assumption, the t test compares only the locations of the distribution represented by means, which is simple and intuitive.
The t statistic is the ratio of mean difference and standard errors of the mean difference. Even when more than two groups are compared, some researchers erroneously apply the t test by implementing multiple t tests on multiple pairs of means.
When we try to compare means of three groups, A, B, and C, using the t test, we need to implement 3 pairwise tests, i. For a comparison of more than two group means the one-way analysis of variance ANOVA is the appropriate method instead of the t test. Then why is the method comparing several means the 'analysis of variance', rather than 'analysis of means' themselves?
It is because that the relative location of the several group means can be more conveniently identified by variance among the group means than comparing many group means directly when number of means are large. The ANOVA method assesses the relative size of variance among group means between group variance compared to the average variance within groups within group variance.
Figure 1 shows two comparative cases which have similar 'between group variances' the same distance among three group means but have different 'within group variances'.
When the between group variances are the same, mean differences among groups seem more distinct in the distributions with smaller within group variances a compared to those with larger within group variances b.
Therefore the ratio of between group variance to within group variance is of the main interest in the ANOVA.Transitional words and phrases can create powerful links between ideas in your paper and can help your reader understand the logic of your paper.

Definition. In composition, comparison is a rhetorical strategy and method of organization in which a writer examines similarities and/or differences between two people, places, ideas, or things. Words and phrases that often signal a comparison include similarly, likewise, by comparison, by the same token, in like manner, in the same way, and in similar fashion.
To follow on from Lee's suggestion a common "real life" use of the t-test to compare means is the paired t-test variant for examining the effect of a treatment on a sample. For example, test students on a topic, then apply a new learning method and retest the SAME students.
The pre-/post-test scores. Some differences in usage and/or meaning can cause confusion or embarrassment.
