## cheyyyboo 2 years ago Suppose y varies directly with x, and y = 10 when x = –3. What direct variation equation relates x and y? What is the value of y when x = –1? A : y = –x; B : y = x; – C :y = x; – D : y = –x; Can somebody explain to me how to do this?

In this scenario, you need to understand what it means when y varies directly with x. Since they vary directly, as x increases, so does y. The proportion, also known as factor, stays constant no matter what you plug into x. This is fit by the following equation: y=x In other words, if you plug 5 into x, y should always no matter what be three times larger than x (just an example). To solve this scenario, you need to find a proportion to use with your y = x formula. You can find the proportion by dividing y=72 by x=6. 72/6=12 Now, to use 12 in the formula. Remember that y is 12 times larger than x when you plug a number for x, so to make y larger, multiply 12 and x. y=12x let(x)→6 Plug 6 into x. Therefore, y = 72 when x = 6. y=12(6)=72
