    I don't think it is a direct variation.

    no need to graph i just need to know if it is a direct variation

    but if you can graph it that would be great too

    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

    if thats how it's graphed it isn't a direct variation right?

    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

    its a dorect variation y=1200 x

    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 y-value to the corresponding x-value

    1200 is not a ratio

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