Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x = 20,000 y = 1,000 y/x = 1,000/20,000 = 0.05 y = 0.05 x The constant of proportionality is 0.05 (5 percent). Look at the other points just to check it out and see if it holds water: x = 1,500 y = 30,000 x/y = 0.05 yes ! x = 2,000 y = 40,000 x/y = 0.05 yes !
