    I know, but I don't know which of these 3 are correct they all seem to fit in the word problem in my head.

    isn't the dependant value the y value or f(x)?

    yeah but isn't it the dependant value? because on your chart 200 is on the x axis

    y = f(x) means y is a function of x x is the independent variable the one controlled y is the dependent variable, the output, changes according to what value of x you put in

    but on your graph 200 is on the x axis when the question asks about the dependant variable
