    not 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

    oh ok if y varies directly with x then \[y = kx\] let x = 16 let y = 48 solve for k

    right, that is how you will solve for k. what answer do you get for k ?

    well 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
