The variable y depends upon the variable x, hence y is the dependent variable and x is the independent variable. In the relationship, x can vary freely, whereas y can only vary in accordance with the variation in x.
The unit rate is the is the rate of y with respect to x. If the unit rate is 1/3, then for one unit of x, there is 1/3 of a unit of y.
y = 1/3x
y is said to be proportional to x because y increases linearly with x.
