What is the dependent varible?
The dependent variable ( responding variable ) is the variable that changes on purpose.
the dependent variable cant change the independent varible, but the independent variable can change the dependent varible. (eg: Bob wants to see if the new baseball pitching machine throws better fastballs then his friend. The baseball pitching machine(independent) could change a fastball(dependent), but a fastball(dependent) cant change the baseball pitching machine(independent).
A dependent variable is non manipulative and is affected by the manipulations of the independent variable. In the case given, the different levels of family stress like high and low can be siad as different levels of a dependent varible i.e. stress. So, family stress can be a dependent variable but not the levels of stress
Variables used in an experiment or modelling can be divided into three types: "dependent variable", "independent variable", or other. The "dependent variable" represents the output or effect, or is tested to see if it is the effect. The "independent variables" represent the inputs or causes, or are tested to see if they are the cause. Other variables may also be observed for various reasons.
An independent variable is one which does not rely on another variable for its value. For example, in the slope intercept form: y = 2x + 3 The x is the independent variable and the y is the dependent variable. The x can be set to anything, therefore it is independent. The value of y is dependent on x for its value.
An Independent Variable is the factor that is directly controlled or change. OR the part that you change. A Dependent Variable is the part measured or what you are looking for in the experiment. A constant is what never changes. A Sample Size is the # of subjects tested or observed. You're WELCOME!!! I literally JUST learned this in school today!
An independent variable. This is because you can manipulate the variable so it is said to be independent of the other variables. This is different from the dependent variable which is the variable you are measuring the change in. For example in an experiment to see how the amount of water given to a plant affects it's height, the amount of water is the independent variable, because it is the variable you can change, while…
An independent variable is the part of an experiment that you control. You can change it and make it anything. Such as an experiment dealing with the length of time it takes certain brands of chewing gum take to lose their flavor. The independent variable would be the brands of gum you decide to test, while the dependent variable would be the time it takes those brands to lose their flavor.
