12.5 is definitely not a variable, as it cannot change its value. Therefore, we can easily eliminate 12.5

Now, let's see. Does \(g\) "depend" on \(t\) or is it the other way around?

Or, look at it this way. The definition of a dependent variable is the variable that is evaluated. We are not looking for \(12.5g\), instead, we are looking for \(t\) .

Therefore, \(t\) is the dependent variable.

You are very welcome!
