Chapter 7: Direct Variation Advanced Math
Section 7.1: Direct Variation, Slope, and Tangent When two variable quantities have a constant ratio, their relationship is called direct variation. The constant ratio is called the variation constant.
Page 359 in your textbook… For the roof, the height of a post depends on its horizontal distance from the eaves. Although the height increases as the distance decreases, the ratio of these two quantities is constant.
Ratio of Quantities = variation constant – Height/Distance = 0.75 – Height = 0.75(Distance) You can either use this equation to find the height of a post needed to support the roof at another point.
Sample Question #1 Suppose the carpenter of the roof shown on page 359 decides that a post should be 3 feet from the eaves. What should the height of the post be? H= 0.75(D) H = 0.75(3) H = 2.25 The post should be 2.25 feet long.
Try this one on your own… Distance from eaves to first post is 10/4 or 2.5 feet. H = 0.75(d) H = 0.75(2.5) H = The shortest post should be feet long. Suppose the carpenter of the roof shown on page 359 wants only three support post between the eaves and the post at the peak. Assuming that the posts are evenly spaced, how long should the shortest support post be?
Slope… The slope of a line is the ratio of rise to run for any two points on the line. Rise = vertical change between two points Run = horizontal change between two points Slope = rise/run
Sample Question #2 Find the slope of the roof shown on page 359. Use the eaves and the peak as the two points. Step One: Draw a Sketch. Step Two: Find the slope. The roof rises 7.5 feet across a distance of 10 feet. Slope = rise/run Slope = 7.5/10
Try this one on your own… Slope = rise/run Slope = 9/18 Slope = 1/2 Suppose the post from the horizontal beam to the peak of the roof is 9 feet high and the length of the beam from the eaves to the post is 18 feet.
Tangent… The tangent ratio of an acute angle compares the two legs of a right triangle. Tangent = leg opposite / leg adjacent
Sample Question #3 Look again at the roof on page 359. What is the tangent ratio of the angle between the roof and the horizontal beam? Tan
Try this one on your own… Tangent

Section 7.4: Direct Variation with y = kx You can model direct variation with an equation y = kx. Y = kx is called the general form for direct variation. Y = dependent variable K = variation constant X = control variable
Sample #1 Y = kx 336 = k (40) K = 8.4 Y = 8.4x Y = 8.4(130) Y = 1092 In 130 hrs, Cindy would make $1092. The amount Cindy earns varies directly with the number of hours she works. She earns $336 in a 40- hour work week. How much will Cindy earn in 130 hours?
Try this one on your own… Efren set an empty fish tank on a bathroom scale. When he added 20 quarts of water, the weight increase was 41 ¾ pounds. He plans to have 28 quarts of water in the tank when he sets the tank up for his fish. If the weight of the water varies directly with the number of quarts used, how much will the water in the tank weigh? About 58 pounds
Direct Variation Graphs The graph of a direct variation equation y = kx is a line that passes through the origin. The variation constant, k, is the slope of the line.
Sample # 2 Is direct variation a good model for the data shown in each graph? Explain why or why not.

Section 7.5: Using Dimensional Analysis When you cancel units of measurement as if they are numbers, you are using a problem solving strategy called dimensional analysis. A conversion factor is a ratio of two equal quantities that are measured in different units. – Example: 12 inches in 1 foot – 12:1
Sample #1 The distance Milo travels varies directly with the number of hours he drives. Milo drives 145 miles in 3 hours. – Identify the control variable and the dependent variable. – Express the variation constant as a rate. Control/Independent Variable = time traveled (hours) Dependent Variable = distance traveled (miles) 145 miles / 3 hours = 48.3 miles per hour
Try this one on your own… The thickness of a stack of copier paper varies directly with the number of sheets in the stack. A new pack of copier paper is 2 inches thick and contains 500 sheets. – Identify the control variable and dependent variable. – Express the variation constant as a rate. Control/Independent = thickness of stack of paper Dependent = number of sheets Variation Constant = 2 inches/500 sheets = inches per sheet
Sample #2 How many centimeters are in 3 inches? – There are 2.54 centimeters in 1 inch. 3 inches x 2.54 cm/1 in 7.62 centimeters Write a direct variation equation that helps you convert inches to centimeters. – X = number of inches – Y = number of centimeters – K = 2.54 – Equation: y = 2.54x What is the variation constant? – 2.54 centimeters per inch

Sample #4 Convert 30 mi/hr to ft/s 1 mile = 5,280 feet 1 hour = 60 minutes 1 minute = 60 seconds Rate x Conversion Factors = New Rate rate x conversion factors = new rate

The region of a circle formed by a central angle and its arc is called a sector. area of sector = measure of the central angle area of circle = 360 degrees
