Modelling Linear Relationships

For the equation h=20t + 50, consider following statements:
I - h is the independent variable
II- t is the dependent variable
Which is correct
A- I only B- II only C- Both I and II D- neither I nor II

This is a question for an assignment I'm doing for year 11 general maths and it would be highly appreciated if anyone could give me the answer and solution..

Re: Modelling Linear Relationships

The dependent variable is generally the variable which is expressed as a function of the independent variable. Traditionally, the dependent variable is alone on the left side of the equality and on the right side is some function of the independent variable.

Given this, what do you think the answer to the question is?

Correct.

The value of h depends on the value of t.
