Dependent variables can be the result of more than one independent variable. Consider your phone bill as presented above. Aside from being charged for minutes over 300, you are charged $1.25 for each directory assistance call and $.75 per minute for long distance roaming calls. You also have to contribute at least $1.50 to the federally required Universal Service Fund per month and this value may vary on your phone bill but is not an independent variable.
