the dependent variable cant change the independent varible, but the independent variable can change the dependent varible. (eg: Bob wants to see if the new Baseball pitching machine throws better fastballs then his friend. The baseball pitching machine(independent) could change a fastball(dependent), but a fastball(dependent) cant change the baseball pitching machine(independent).
