## isabella_23 3 years ago International travel and business require the conversion of American dollars into foreign currency. During part of 2005, one American dollar was worth 6 Croatian Kuna. Jakov converts n kuna into c dollars. Which expression is the dependent variable in this situation? 1.c/6 2.n 3.n/16 4.c

helppp

So 1c = 6n Since she is converting kuna into dollars I would say Kuna (n) is the independent and Dollars (c) is the dependant. That would make 6n the expression. Since that's not a choice, we suppose that the variables are reversed and we solve for n instead of c... n=c/6

Does that make sense to you?

yes it does thanks idk why they put weird questions

5. MrYantho

That is a terribly worded question. And I actually disagree with the answere. Since the number of dollars she gets "depends" on the number of kuna she has. C should be the dependent var

wikipedia has a fairly good explanation dependent and independent variables. Maybe think of it as an input and output ( independent vars ) and something that changes them ( the dependent var ) The convserision variable is the dependent
