Direct Variation A direct variation is formed by the variables x and y if the ratio y : x always equals a constant k, where k is a positive number.

7
**Directly Proportional**

Variables are directly proportional when y is said to vary directly with x.

8
**Constant of Proportionality**

The constant k is the constant of variation, or the constant of proportionality.

Example 1 Does y vary directly with x in the following table? If so, find the constant of variation and write an equation for the direct variation. x y 1 3 3 9 5 15 7 21

12
Constant of Variation The constant of variation is the steady rate of change. The constant k is the constant of variation, or the constant of proportionality.

13
Example 2 Indicate which equations represent a direct variation. If an equation describes a direct variation, give the constant of variation. f(x) = 2.2x direct variation; k = 2.2

14
y = 4x − 1 This is not a direct variation; the variable must be a multiple of x. d = 45t This is a direct variation; k = 45. y = −2x This is not a direct variation; the coefficient of x must be positive.
