    y = ax 9 = a3 so a = 3 y = 3x y = (3)(11)

    y = ax 4 = a(20) a = (1/5) y = (1/5)x x = 5y x = (5)(6) = 30

    So, all I did was basically the same thing, but the only twist here is that I flipped the "x" and "y". See that?

    So, with these "varying directly" problems, you can start out the same way in both cases. Nice working with you!
