## CHECK THESE SAMPLES OF The Independent Variable and Dependent Variable

...? FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING Basic ideas about cost behavior Cost behavior is mainly divided into three i.e. the fixed, **variable** and mixed costs. Cost behavior is the change in cost in relation to the level of activity changes. The total **variable** cost normally changes as the activity level changes, while per unit, the **variable** cost per unit will normally remain the equal over a wider range of activity. Fixed cost will always remain the same when the activity level changes while fixed cost per unit decreases with an increase in the activity level (Hansen, et, al 2006) Mixed cost, have both the component of **variable** and fixed costs. Product cost versus period cost Also known as...

... be made out of this amount of materials is represented as shown in the following equation:
15cmr + 12 mmr ≤ 3000
(3). Finding intercepts of the two **variables** on x axis (**dependent** **variable**) and y axis (**independent** **variable**) where either of them is zero, requires substitution of either of the **variables** with a zero value so as to obtain the maximum possible value of the other **variable**. The obtained intercepts can then provide end points on the line that will help draw a line that will map out the area of possibility.
Cmr Intercept:
Therefore, if cmr is on the horizontal axis and mmr is equals to = 0, then the equation becomes:
15cmr ≤ 3000
15cmr / 15 ≤ 3000 / 15
Cmr ≤ 200
The cmr intercept is thus (200, 0) (cmr, mmr)
Cmr Intercept... Two...

...**Variable** selection **Variable** selection Bruce Ratner prefers forward and backward selection because they are better selection methods as opposed to stepwise. Bruce Ratner views stepwise selection as being far too narrow in yielding confidence and will not produce good results if used when the data has redundant predictors. This is opposed to forward and backward selection which are very efficient in such situations and many others (Bruce, 2011). Many other people do not share the same opinion as Bruce Ratner: many computer data analysts find stepwise selection to be very efficient and good to use. They prefer when the stepwise selection method is used in the algorithm of data analysis programs such as SAS...

... Introduction Inequality is a mathematical equation that uses symbols less variables determined from the graph.
Problems
1. Problem 68.
Shipping restrictions. The accompanying graph shows all of the possibilities for the number of refrigerators and the number of TVs that will fit into an 18-wheeler.
a) Write an inequality to describe this region.
Equality to detail the region is given by;
Slope of the graph; ==
From what was given pg68, == -3
Therefore slope is;
Dividing both sides by 3
Therefore linear inequality becomes;
b) Will the truck hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs... be delivered in the same truck?
Solution
Equation is a dashed line
The maximum number of TVs to deliver should not exceed 150
The maximum number of refrigerators will be;
Equation is a dashed line
Therefore the number of refrigerators to delivered the same day should be at most 43.
Conclusion
Based on the problems solved above, the inequality equation was obtained which was used to solve other subsequent questions. The nature of the equation lines were determined to ascertain whether they are doted or solid lines based on (). Alternatively, unknown values of the **variables** in the equation were obtained.... Introduction Inequality is a mathematical equation that...

...**Variable** Pay Programme By + Introduction **Variable** pay is bonuses rewarded to employees by employers for achieving certain set goals in an organization. This pay is given **depending** on individual or groups performance. **Variable** pay provides a tangible reward for employees and encourages them to work hard and more efficient. **Variable** pay is given in a number of way. It includes annual incentives, individual incentives, gaining shares, and payments for newly acquired knowledge and skills.
**Variable** pay in an organisation is used to motivate employees to perform effective in their line of work. This is a type of incentive to workers (Belcher, 2006).
