    Divide each value of y by the corresponding value of x. If the answer is the same each time, y varies directly with x and the quotient is the variation constant k.

    No, I believe thats the equation for inversely proportional.

    For directly proportional, y=kx

    Yep, the y values are 1.6 times the x values, so the answer is A.

    If the quotient for each y/x =1.6, then it is direct variation with k =1.6
