To estimate animal populations, biologists count the total number of animals in a small section of a habitat. The total population of animals is directly proportional to the number of watering holes polled and inversely proportional to the size of the habitat (in acres). Write an equation that could be used to solve for the constant of variation k.

    (number of watering holes polled)(population)/size of habitat = k I believe
