It is what is being tested The amount of salt. 3. Dependent (responding)Variable The variable that changes because you changed something. The response. The hatching rate of the brine shrimp. 4.

Compare to hypothesis. 2.5g salt solution is the best for hatching brine shrimp.

 Qualitative observations : descriptions that do not use numbers. (C olors, smells, tastes, textures, or sounds)  Quantitative observations : descriptions that do include numbers. (If you count objects, or measure). Quantitative observations are often made using tools.  Inference : A conclusion based on evidence
