A high school club is conducting a cupcake sale at a local fair to raise money for a trip. The club members are baking a total of 444 cupcakes. Each cupcake will sell for \$3.00. The display tables cost \$75.00 to rent.

Part A​ (2 points).
If ​n​ is the number of cupcakes sold and ​p​ is the profit earned, which is the independent variable and which is the dependent variable? Explain.

Independent variable: N is the independent variable ​

Dependent variable: P is the dependent variable ​

Explain: P is the dependent variable because the total profit depends on how many cupcakes total they sell. They also will lose profit for rental costs.

----My Question is are P and N a function and can you explain to me how if it is or isnt?----
