C= 7p + 50

C represent the total cost of the party, and 7p represents the cost depending upon the number of people attending. The independent variable would be p, people, because Adrienne can change the number of people, it is independent of the other variable. Variable C is dependent upon the number of people, p. This is very, very easy.
