(From Unit 3, Lesson 19.)Problem 5
Elena donates some money to charity whenever she earns money as a babysitter. The table shows how much money, \(d\), she donates for different amounts of money, \(m\), that she earns.
\(d\)  4.44  1.80  3.12  3.60  2.16 

\(m\)  37  15  26  30  18 
 What percent of her income does Elena donate to charity? Explain or show your work.
 Which quantity, \(m\) or \(d\), would be the better choice for the dependent variable in an equation describing the relationship between \(m\) and \(d\)? Explain your reasoning.
 Use your choice from the second question to write an equation that relates \(m\) and \(d\).
