# What is an independent variable and dependent variable?

Question: What's a variable? Answer: A variable is an object, event, idea, feeling, time period, or any other type of category you are trying to measure. There are t…wo types of variables-independent and dependent. Question: What's an independent variable? Answer: An independent variable is exactly what it sounds like. It is a variable that stands alone and isn't changed by the other variables you are trying to measure. For example, someone's age might be an independent variable. Other factors (such as what they eat, how much they go to school, how much television they watch) aren't going to change a person's age. In fact, when you are looking for some kind of relationship between variables you are trying to see if the independent variable causes some kind of change in the other variables, or dependent variables. Question: What's a dependent variable? Answer: Just like an independent variable, a dependent variable is exactly what it sounds like. It is something that depends on other factors. For example, a test score could be a dependent variable because it could change depending on several factors such as how much you studied, how much sleep you got the night before you took the test, or even how hungry you were when you took it. Usually when you are looking for a relationship between two things you are trying to find out what makes the dependent variable change the way it does. Many people have trouble remembering which is the independent variable and which is the dependent variable. An easy way to remember is to insert the names of the two variables you are using in this sentence in they way that makes the most sense. Then you can figure out which is the independent variable and which is the dependent variable: (Independent variable) causes a change in (Dependent Variable) and it isn't possible that (Dependent Variable) could cause a change in (Independent Variable). For example: (Time Spent Studying) causes a change in (Test Score) and it isn't possible that (Test Score) could cause a change in (Time Spent Studying). We see that "Time Spent Studying" must be the independent variable and "Test Score" must be the dependent variable because the sentence doesn't make sense the other way around.

# Dependent and independent variables in the scientific method?

In a scientific method (or experiment), a dependent variable is one that changes throughout the experiment. These are the ones whose changes need to be recorded. Independent… variables are those that influence the experiment, but do not change throughout the experiment and remain the same value.

# Is price is independent variable or dependent variable?

dependent variable

# What is dependent and independent variables in the scientific method?

The independent variable is the one thing in the experiment that does change. The dependent variable "depends" on the independent variable. For example if you were testing to …see how well plants grow in the dark, and you put one plant in a closet and the other by a window. The independent variable would be the amount of sunlight that each plant gets. The dependent variable would be if the plants grew or not because it depends on how much sunlight each plant got.

# What is the dependent variable?

The dependent variable is the variable in the experiment that changes. For example if you were trying to figure out which of the three fertilizers works the best on flowers yo…ur dependent variable would be the fertilizer and the independent variable would be the flowers.

# What is variable define dependent independent variable?

Take the expression y = f(x) where f is a function relating y in terms of x. x is the input - the independant variable. y is the output - the dependant varia…ble because it's value depends on x.

# How do you pick out independent variables and dependent variables?

An Independent variable is what you control; you decide the focus of your experiment and what you control on the independent variable. Dependent variable is what you want …to look at or find results for; you decide what you want to see from manipulating your independent variable.

# What best describes the relationship between a dependent variable and an independent variable in a scientific investigation?

The independent variable is what you are changing in the experiment to get varied results. The dependent variable is the result of what you have changed. So the dependent vari…able depends on the independent variable. For example, if you are experimenting with the effect of water on height of a plant, the different amounts of water that you give the plant is the independent variable. The height of the plant that you measure as the result of the water is the dependent variable.
