Please only post your questions once. Repeating posts will not get a quicker response. In addition, it wastes our time looking over reposts that have already been answered in another post. Thank you.

An **independent variable** is the potential stimulus or cause, usually directly manipulated by the experimenter, so it could also be called a manipulative variable.

A **dependent variable** is the response or measure of results.
