  result of changing the independent.
Independent Vs Dependent
Variables
 EXAMPLE: If I change the amount of
  water a plant receives, the height of the
  pant will change.
 The independent variable is the water,
  because we are changing it.
 The dependent variable is the height of
  the plant, because it is affected by the
  water.
