## Can a hypothesis have two independent variables?

Yes, a hypothesis can have more than one independent variable.

### How do you identify the independent and dependent variables in a research topic?

The variables in a study of a cause-and-effect relationship are called the independent and dependent variables.

- The independent variable is the cause. Its value is independent of other variables in your study.
- The dependent variable is the effect. Its value depends on changes in the independent variable.

**What is the role of the independent variable?**

An independent variable is defines as the variable that is changed or controlled in a scientific experiment. It represents the cause or reason for an outcome. A change in the independent variable directly causes a change in the dependent variable. The effect on the dependent variable is measured and recorded.

**What is the independent variable in quantitative research?**

The independent variable is the variable the experimenter manipulates or changes, and is assumed to have a direct effect on the dependent variable.

## Which of the following describes a dependent variable?

A dependent variable is what you measure in the experiment and what is affected during the experiment. The dependent variable responds to the independent variable. It is called dependent because it “depends” on the independent variable.

### Is height a independent variable?

the average height of adults might give you a graph as shown below. The independent variable is average height. The dependent variable is weight. For example, height might be an independent variable in the context stated above but a dependent variable in a study on the effect of nutrition on growth rates.

**What is a dependent variable in algebra?**

The dependent variable is the one that depends on the value of some other number. If, say, y = x+3, then the value y can have depends on what the value of x is. Another way to put it is the dependent variable is the output value and the independent variable is the input value.

**What is a dependent variable in research?**

Definitions. Dependent Variable. The variable that depends on other factors that are measured. These variables are expected to change as a result of an experimental manipulation of the independent variable or variables.
