In order to compare two scales, 30 objects are weighed on both scales. Each object would then have two weight values (one from scale 1 and one from scale 2). Based on the nature of the differences in the two weight measurements for the 30 objects, the two scales may be compared. Do these samples represent dependent or independent samples?

• math -

The independent variables here are the objects themselves, while the dependent variables are the readings of their weights.

• math -

the measurements of the objects' weights are dependent on the actual (true) weights of the objects

the true weights are independent variables

I'm curious as to which "samples" the question refers to
