One way to estimate the distance of a thunderstorm is to count the number of seconds that pass from the sight of a flash of lightning until thunder is heard. Identify the independent and dependent variables.

    ideally, you would write an equation as that will answer your question.....

    wouldn't the independent be time? since the distance depends on how much time has gone by

    Sorry, I'm not fully understanding this. @Zepdrix is better at this than I am.

    Hey tori :) The two things which are varying are: `distance of thunder` `time` Which one `depends` on the other? Time independent? good good good. the distance depends on how much time has passed, good job! :)
