    if 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?

    can 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

    now 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?

    these values of y and x do satisfy the relation y = kx which is direct variation do you see that?

    right there are 2 types of variation direct where y = kx and indirect where y = k / x
