In this lesson, you will learn the difference between independent and dependent variables and how to determine which variable goes on the x-axis and which goes on the y-axis. The lesson provides examples of different situations and explains how to graph the relationship between the variables. The key takeaway is that the independent variable goes on the x-axis and is independent of the other variable, while the dependent variable goes on the y-axis and its value depends on the other variable.
Learn the basics of what an independent variable is, what a dependent variable is, and what difference it makes when graphing a situation.
