I am attempting to analyse my data, however I am having trouble working out what statistical test to use. Please could someone help me figure this out?

My IV is measured using a single Likert scale, i.e., a single question with the answer of either not at all, a little bit, or a lot. As I am not using the total of multiple Likert scales to produce my IV, I believe this data to be ordinal.

However, my dependent variable

*is*the total of multiple Likert scales. I therefore believe this to be ratio data.

Does anyone know what the appropraite statistical analysis for this would be?

Thank you so much in advance!
