depends on the constarint like, this many bottles should be filled /hr etc and any resting time is there as to m/c fills up to 2hrs continous and then stops for 5 min, if ther are no such constrainst then it is a direct variation

then what is the constant of the variation some are 3 some are 2 doesn't that mean it isn't a direct variation

The general function, that shows this is \(\text{bottles=1200}\cdot\text{minutes}\) or \(y=1200x\).

The constant must be 1200

i thought the constant was the ratio of any yvalue to the corresponding xvalue

Try to find \(\frac y x\) from \(y=1200x\).
