Determine whether y varies directly with x. If so find the constant variation. y = 12x ****** The answer is Yes; 12 I dont understand how this is the answer. Can someone help me?

    my guess would be that its because y is equal to whatever 12(x) is going to be.

    here's something you can remember... if y and x are in one line...then it's a direct variation if either y or x is in the denominator...then inverse variation

    \[y = kx \leftarrow \; \text{direct variation}\] \[y = \frac kx \leftarrow \; \text{inverse variation}\]

    it means its value doesnt matter because it is constant..in other words...always stays the same

    12 instead of K

  32. lgbasallote

    RIGHT! that's why 12 is the constant variation

  33. lgbasallote
    • 2 years ago

    because k is the constant variation..and k = 12

    the answer to that one was "NOT direct variation" right?

    that's because of the 1 y = 4x + 1 is not in the form y = kx because of that 1
