## Where do you find the dependent variable on a table?

The independent variable usually goes in the columns, while the dependent variable goes in the rows. Rows and columns intersect at cells. The row and column totals of a bivariate table are called marginals.

## What is the dependent variable in a table?

The quantity that depends on the other quantity is called the dependent variable, and the quantity it depends on is called the independent variable. The values of variables are used in tables and in plotting graphs.

## Which side of the table is the independent variable?

left

## How do you find the independent and dependent variables?

An easy way to think of independent and dependent variables is, when you’re conducting an experiment, the independent variable is what you change, and the dependent variable is what changes because of that. You can also think of the independent variable as the cause and the dependent variable as the effect.

## What is the difference between independent and dependent variable in research?

The independent variable is the variable the experimenter changes or controls and is assumed to have a direct effect on the dependent variable. The dependent variable is the variable being tested and measured in an experiment, and is ‘dependent’ on the independent variable.

## How do we use variables in everyday life?

You can use a variable expression to describe a real world situation where one or more quantities have an unknown value or can change in value. To write a variable expression for a real world situation: Figure out which quantity in the situation is unknown and define a variable to represent the unknown quantity.
