First ask yourself  what is the formula for Direct Variation? When you google this  you'll find that this formula is shown as \(\large \color{green}{ y = kx}\). We've got \(\large \color{red}{7y=3x}\) How do we change this to fit the form of direct variation? We divide both sides of the //equation by 7 \[\large \cfrac{7y}{7} = \cfrac{3}{7}x\] Simplifying both sides of the equation, what do we get?

That's good. \[\large y=\color{blue}{\cfrac{3}{7}}x\]\(\large \cfrac{3}{7}\) is out "k" value.
