Due to erosion, a river shoreline is losing several thousand pounds of soil each year. A linear equation that expresses the total amount of soil lost per year is
What are the independent and dependent variables?
The dependent variable is the amount of soil lost in the pound that is and the independent variable is time that is year in the question variable.
Given in the question is a linear equation .
The independent variable is the variable the researcher operates or changes, and is guessed to contain a direct impact on the dependent variable.
The dependent variable means the variable being experimented and estimated in an investigation, and is 'dependent' on the independent variable.
The statement here is a river shoreline is losing several thousand pounds of soil each year
Here the dependent variable y is the amount of soil lost in the pound and the independent variable x is the time (year)
