3.01 Assignment: Independent and Dependent Variables Skyla Jones Ms. Dugan Algebra 1 December 24, 2018 1. The amount of money Lisa makes depends on the number of hours she works at the mall. The independent variable is the number of hours and the dependent variable is the amount of money. Let x = the number of hours worked and let y = the amount of money Lisa received. The set of ordered pairs {(1, 15), (2, 30), (3, 45), (4, 60), (5, 75)} can be used to represent the function, assuming Lisa earns \$15 per hour. 2. The number of minutes James takes depends on the number of laps he runs in practice. The independent variable is the number of laps and the dependent variable is the number of min- utes. Let x = the number of laps ran and let y = the number of minutes it took James to run. The set of ordered pairs {(1,2), (2, 4), (3, 6), (4, 8), (5, 10)} can be used to represent the function, assuming James runs 1 lap per 2 mins. 3.
