dependent variable = t
independent variable = p
Hi, in the equation t=12p+12, p is the independent variable, because is an input value.
t is the dependent variable, because is the output value, it depends of the input value.
For example if p =1, t=24
t(1) =12(1) +12
t(1) = 12+12 =24
But if p=0; t=12
t (0) = 12(0) +12 =12
We can see how the value of t varies as the value of p changes.
in thers of the statement, the total cost of the meal (t) depends on the tip percentage (p).
12. 12 1p=t
