Short Answer

A specialty cleaning company charges an equipment fee and an hourly labor fee. A linear equation that expresses the total amount of the fee the company charges for each session is y = 50 + 100x.

What are the independent and dependent variables?

The independent variable x is the session in the company and the dependent variable y is the total amount of fee.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Given information

Given in the question is a linear equation y=50+100x

Step 2: Solution

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 given equation y=50+100x shows the total number of fee that the company charges for each session.

So in this, the total amount of fee is depended upon the session.

The session is independent and total number of fee is dependent.
