Jake ran a marathon at a constant speed of 6 miles per hour. The total distance of the marathon was 12 miles
It is a variable that stands alone and isn't changed by the other variables you are trying to measure.
My independent variable is distance (miles)
It is something that depends on other factors.
My dependent variable is Time (minutes)
Graph is below
Jake ran another mile every 10 minutes so the graph is increasing.
And Jake ran 6 miles in 60 minutes and 60 minutes is an hour.
So that explains how the graph matches with the senerio.
60x = 6y
A constant is anumber on its own
My constant is x and y
60 and 6
