Q:

# TO BILL CUSTOMERS FOR WATER USAGE ONE CITY CONVERTS THE NUMBER OF GALLONS USED INTO UNITS THIS RELATIONSHIP IS REPRESENTED BY THE EQUATION G=748 U WHERE G IS THE TOTAL NUMBER OF GALLONS OF WATER USED AND U IS THE NUMBER OF UNITS. DETERMINE WHICH STATEMENT IS TRUE ABOUT RELATIONSHIP SELECT TWO G IS A DEPENDENT VARIABLEU IS A DEPENDENT VARIABLEG IS THE INDEPENDENT VARIABLEU IS THE INDEPENDENT VARIABLETHE TWO VARIABLES CANNOT BE LABELED AS INDEPENDENT OR DEPENDENT WITHOUT A TABLE OF VALUES.THE TWO VARIABLES CANNOT BE LABELED AS INDEPENDENT OR DEPENDENT SINCE ANY VALUE CAN BE SELECTED FOR EITHER

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:1. G IS A DEPENDENT VARIABLE2.U IS THE INDEPENDENT VARIABLEStep-by-step explanation:G is a dependent variable because its values will rely on the values of U multiplied by 748. A dependent variable in most cases is isolated on one side of an equation ( mostly the left-hand side) and it value is affected by the values selected on the other side of the equation.U is an independent variable because it stands on its own such that it does not rely on the behavior of another variable to determine its value/characteristic.Characteristic here i mean , U is freely selected without considering the behavior of other variable, thus it does not face any restrictions as compared to G.
