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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my guess would be that its because y is equal to whatever 12(x) is going to be.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know. How about y = 4x+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i am probably in over my head.. sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[y = kx \leftarrow \; \text{direct variation}\] \[y = \frac kx \leftarrow \; \text{inverse variation}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so how does that apply to my first problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = 12x <in the for y = kx <can you see that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so how does it arie directly with x.. Im sorry im just not seeing the picture

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0varie* My teacher isnt that good

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look at what i said above about y = kx

AcidRa1n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah I know but what does K mean how the flutter does it varie with anything?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is called the proportionality constant

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it means its value doesnt matter because it is constant..in other words...always stays the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now I get why 12 is there.. So now explain the rest please?

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in your terms... k is the constant variation

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first tell me... do you agree that y = 12x is in the form y = kx?

AcidRa1n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is y = k? which is 12? and how does that varie to x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what do you see as difference between \[\huge y = kx\] and \[\huge y = 12x\]

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1spot the difference

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what do you mean yeah?

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what's the difference??

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1RIGHT! that's why 12 is the constant variation

lgbasallote
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because k is the constant variation..and k = 12

AcidRa1n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh K= Constant Variationnnnnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so what about this one y = 4x + 1

lgbasallote
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the answer to that one was "NOT direct variation" right?

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's because of the 1 y = 4x + 1 is not in the form y = kx because of that 1

AcidRa1n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont wnana get confused

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1add 6x to both sides

AcidRa1n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright so the answer is 6!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what about y _ 3 = 3x

lgbasallote
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can't combine 3 and 3x

AcidRa1n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is that a constant variation?

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no..im just talking about algebra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah forget about that one can you help me with proportions? i'll open up a new question
