Amy is required to bake thirty cupcakes in an hour for a charity bake sale to raise money for an animal shelter that is about to undergo foreclosure. Each cupcakes is baked individually at a rate of two minutes baking time per cupcake.
The independent variable in a scenario is the variable that changes independently. In this scenario, the independent variable is time.
The dependent variable in a scenario is the variable that changes in response to the independent variable. In this scenario, the dependent variable is the number of cupcakes.
The constant in a scenario is the thing that stays the same throughout.The constant in my scenario is the rate which is two minutes of baking time per cupcake.
In the graph, the x-axis (the one on the bottom) represents the time in minutes and the y-axis (the one on the side) represents the number of cupcakes. The line represents the steady rate of time.
My equation is t/2=n
n= number of cupcakes
This equation is true because it take 2 minutes for each cupcakes to bake so the opposite of multiplication is division
