5 Differences between Independent variable and Dependent variable

A variable is any factor, trait, or condition that can have different values, change in variable influences the outcome of experimental research
The variable is the factor you might measure in an experiment
Three types of variables:
1. Independent variable: The variable that researcher changes or the researcher think it will affect the dependent variable
2. Dependent variable: The variable that is affected by change  in independent variable
            3. Controlled variable: The variable that is kept constant or same throughout the experiment.

Independent variable is the variable that the researcher changes in an experiment.
Dependant  variable is the variable that researcher thinks will be affected by change  in independent variable
Usually denoted by ‘x’
Usually denoted by ‘y’
It is the ‘cause’ or reason that the researcher assumes to influence dependent variable
It is the ‘effect’ or ‘outcome’ caused by the change in independent variable

The values of independent variable are manipulated by the researcher
The values of dependent variable are observed and measured by the researcher in an experiment
The value of independent variable can be changed
The value of dependent variable cannot be changed
