Variables
Variables refer to conditions, traits, or factors that have the ability to exist in differing
types and amounts. Variables are common in studies and experiments and they are of
different types. The first one is a dependent variable. A dependent variable refers to those
factors that the person conducting a study assumes are dependent on something else or the
values of another variable. An independent variable, on the other hand, is the opposite of a
dependent variable. It does not depend on another factor or variable for it to take place.
