Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not sure what that means? i know y can vary directly with x, but what does it mean "y varies directly with x and y" ? that would mean y = kxy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok if y varies directly with x then \[y = kx\] let x = 16 let y = 48 solve for k

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, that is how you will solve for k. what answer do you get for k ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03 but in the question it doesnt ask for k and i did write 48=k16 and got it wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well we didn't answer the question yet. we can't answer the question without knowing what k is since we solve for k = 3 then we know y = kx y = 3x
