## tonirenee_ 2 years ago Does the equation represent a direct variation? If so, find the constant of variation. 5x = -3y

• This Question is Closed
1. punnus

Yes it does but which according to the question is your independent variable. If it is "x", then the variable y varies by $-\frac{ 5 }{ 3 }$ of x

2. miteshchvm

x= -3/5*y and y=-5/3*x are the variation constants if you put x= m then y would be -5/3x same for both the variables :)
