D. Sam and Pete have a job dog-sitting for their neighbor. He pays them $5.00 for each hour they “sit”.

Independent_______________________________

Dependent________________________________

I know the answer to independent I just need help with Dependent

The independent variable is the variable that you control. The dependent variable is the variable that changes out of your control. So, the independent here would be the # of hours they "sit". As the hours increase, what is changing? That is the dependent variable. As the time goes on, the amount of money they are receiving is changing.

is this the exact answer? because this is the answer I gave my teacher and she said it is incorrect and for me to do it until i get it right.
