Algebra 1 - Identify independent and dependent variables

In general, algebra equations have two or more variables. If the value of a variable does not depend on another, it is called an independent variable and the variable whose value depends on another is termed as dependent variable. In the equations, y = 2x + 5 and s = t^2 (t raised to power 2), x & t are examples of independent variables and y & s are dependent variable examples. Identifying independent and dependent variables in a given situation comes by practice. Resources on this page will help you to learn more about independent and dependent variables.
