Direct Variation and Proportion Objective: Write and apply direct variation and proportion problems

3
Direct Variation The variable y varies directly as x if there is a nonzero constant k such that y = kx. The equation y = kx is called a direct variation equation and the number k is called the constant of variation.

4
Example 1 Find the constant of variation, k and the direct variation equation if y varies directly as x and y = -24 when x = 4.

5
Example 1 Find the constant of variation, k and the direct variation equation if y varies directly as x and y = -24 when x = 4. Use the direct variation equation Substitute -24 for y and 4 for x

6
Example 1 Find the constant of variation, k and the direct variation equation if y varies directly as x and y = -24 when x = 4. Use the direct variation equation Substitute -24 for y and 4 for x Solve for k.

7
Example 1 Find the constant of variation, k and the direct variation equation if y varies directly as x and y = -24 when x = 4. Use the direct variation equation Substitute -24 for y and 4 for x Solve for k. The direct variation equation is

8
Try This Find the constant of variation, k and the direct variation equation if y varies directly as x and y = 21 when x = 7.

9
Try This Find the constant of variation, k and the direct variation equation if y varies directly as x and y = 21 when x = 7. Use the direct variation equation Substitute 21 for y and 7 for x Solve for k. The direct variation equation is

Proportions A ratio is a comparison of two numbers by division. A proportion is a statement that two ratios are equal.

Proportions A ratio is a comparison of two numbers by division. A proportion is a statement that two ratios are equal. A proportion of the form can be rearranged like this:

15
Cross-Product Property The result of what we just did is called the cross- product property of proportions. This is also called the means-extremes product property.
