    Dependent variables relay on the independent variable

    It's normally the y axis of the graph, while the independent is normaly the x axis.

    So, my question is this: What is the dependent variable when calculating the price of a car?

    The independent variable is typically the variable representing the value being manipulated or changed and the dependent variable is the observed result of the independent variable being manipulated. For example concerning nutrition, the independent variable of daily vitamin C intake (how much vitamin C one consumes) can influence the dependent variable of life expectancy (the average age one attains). Over some period of time, scientists will control the vitamin C intake in a substantial group of people. One part of the group will be given a daily high dose of vitamin C, and the remainder will be given a placebo pill (so that they are unaware of not belonging to the first group) without vitamin C. The scientists will investigate if there is any statistically significant difference in the life span of the people who took the high dose and those who took the placebo (no dose). The goal is to see if the independent variable of high vitamin C dosage has a correlation with the dependent variable of people's life span. The designation independent/dependent is clear in this case, because if a correlation is found, it cannot be that life span has influenced vitamin C intake, but an influence in the other direction is possible. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dependent_and_independent_variables

    the independant variables are all the little things that make you decide at what price to purchase or sell the car

    So, my dependent variable is the cost of the car before taxes and fees?

    np, the dependant variable is the cost of the car after all taxes and fees have been processed

    then your independent could be the years after it was made

    the price of the car "depends" on the taxes and fees

    Okay,what about this one? The function y=2/5x+3 has a domain of (-5,0,5). What is its range?
