Tips: Something that is variable is able to change and commonly does so. In math, a variable is a range of values that can change in an equation, while in logic a variable is a symbol used to represent individual statements. Variable, in both the adjective and noun form, always describes or refers to things that change. In the equation 2+3x-4y=?, the answer to the equation will depend on the variables x and y. The answer to the equation changes based on the value of the variables.
