Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if y varies directly with x then y = kx where k is a constant find k by plugging in the given values of y and x when y = 3 , x = 2 3 = k * 2 can you find k?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2can u see what i've done i've substituted 3/2 for k now to find y when x = 3 plug in 3 for x and work out the value of y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now plug in the values of x and y y = 3 and x = 1 k = 3 / 1 = 3 y = 9 and x = 3 k = 9/3 = 3 also k = 15 / 5 = 3 so is this varying direct;y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2these values of y and x do satisfy the relation y = kx which is direct variation do you see that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right there are 2 types of variation direct where y = kx and indirect where y = k / x
