How to use variable in a sentence?

  1. Nanette Wenger:

    The variable that I think would be even more important if you're just looking at the outcome of survival is the delay between the time the woman arrived at the emergency room and the time some definitive diagnosis was made and treatment instituted, if that woman was sitting in the emergency room for several hours as compared with several minutes, between the women and the men, that might be the difference. So the time would be an important variable, and that's not even addressed by the paper.

  2. Jeffrosenberg Tan:

    Property stocks will have more support since price valuation can be justified by more stable valuation of land banks and recurring assets. On the other hand, cement stock valuations are based on cement demand - a less stable variable in the slowing economy and increasing competition.

  4. David Brenner:

  5. Louis Uccellini:

    Snow measurements are extremely difficult to take because precipitation is inherently variable, a problem compounded by strong winds and compaction during a long duration event, still, it's important that we scrutinize questionable measurements and reject those that scientists deem invalid to ensure the public's continued confidence in the U.S. climate record.
