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

i am probably in over my head.. sorry

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

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

ok so how does that apply to my first problem

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

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
in the form*

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh ok so how does it arie directly with x.. Im sorry im just not seeing the picture

varie* My teacher isnt that good

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
look at what i said above about y = kx
 2 years ago

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yeah I know but what does K mean how the flutter does it varie with anything?
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
k is a constant
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it is called the proportionality constant
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it means its value doesnt matter because it is constant..in other words...always stays the same
 2 years ago

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok now I get why 12 is there.. So now explain the rest please?
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
in your terms... k is the constant variation
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
first tell me... do you agree that y = 12x is in the form y = kx?
 2 years ago

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is y = k? which is 12? and how does that varie to x?
 2 years ago

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yeah I get that
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what do you see as difference between \[\huge y = kx\] and \[\huge y = 12x\]
 2 years ago

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yeah I see that
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
spot the difference
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
not the similarity

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

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I spot the difference
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what's the difference??
 2 years ago

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
12 instead of K
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
RIGHT! that's why 12 is the constant variation
 2 years ago

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

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ohhh K= Constant Variationnnnnn

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok so what about this one y = 4x + 1
 2 years ago

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

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that's because of the 1 y = 4x + 1 is not in the form y = kx because of that 1
 2 years ago

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
what about y  6x = 0

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
simplify it first

add 3 to both sides
 2 years ago

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

AcidRa1n Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is that a constant variation?
 2 years ago

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