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

10 Example 2 Each day John rides his bike for exercise. When traveling at a constant rate, he rides 4 miles in about 20 minutes. At this rate, how long would it take John to travel 7 miles?

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

14 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.
