Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use variables of weight, W, and distance, D. (You will have to use one of your data points to find your constant of variation.) (1 point for the general form of variation, 1 point for the constant variation, and 1 point for the final equation)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is an inverse relationship between W and d. As w increases d decreases. so W = k/d where k is a constant to be found plug in one value of W and the corresponding value of d into the above equation then you can find the value of k.
