## pokemon23 3 years ago Hey, I need help with algebra. I need to figure out which is the independent and dependent qualities for the situation and find reasonable domain and range values. 1) Tom has \$8.00. He wants to buy oranges which cost \$0.75 cents a piece?

1. UnkleRhaukus

oranges (dollars)

2. pokemon23

what do you mean?

3. UnkleRhaukus

oranges are a function of dollars the numbers of oranges bought depends on the number of dollars that tom has

4. pokemon23

so is independent will be the amount of money tom has hopefully I'm in the right page as you?

5. UnkleRhaukus

yeah the money is the independent variable , number of oranges is the dependent variable because the number of oranges depends of the number of dollars

6. pokemon23

sorry but I'm dumber than a stack of bricks.

7. pokemon23

so what does it by find reasonable domain and range values?

8. UnkleRhaukus

the domain , is all the possibilities for the independent variable the range , is all the possibilities for the dependent variable
