4 A direct variation is a linear function that can be written as y = kx, where k is a nonzero constant called the constant of variation.
5 Additional Example 1: Determining Whether a Data Set Varies Directly Determine whether the data set shows direct variation.A.
6 Additional Example 1A Continued Method 1: Make a graph.The graph is not linear.
7 Additional Example 1A Continued Method 2: Compare ratios.8181 ≠ 264The ratios are not equivalent.2232712=?264Both methods show the relationship is not a direct variation.
8 Additional Example 1: Determining Whether a Data Set Varies Directly Determine whether the data set shows direct variation.B.
9 Additional Example 1B Continued Method 1: Make a graph.Plot the points.The points lie in a straight line.(0, 0) is included.
10 Additional Example 1B Continued Method 2: Compare ratios.25105020753010040The ratio is constant.===Both methods show the relationship is a direct variation.
11 Additional Example 2: Finding Equations of Direct Variation Rachel rents space in a salon to cut and style hair. She paid the salon owner $24 for 3 cut and styles. Write a direct variation function for this situation. If Rachel does 7 cut and styles, how much will she pay the salon owner?Step 1 Write the direct variation function.Think: The amount owed varies directly with the amount of cuts given.x = 3 and y = 24y = kx24 = k 3Substitute 24 for y and 3 for x.8 = kSolve for k.y = 8xSubstitute 8 for k in the original equation.
12 Additional Example 2 Continued Step 2 Find how much Rachel will pay the salon owner for 7 cut and styles.Substitute 7 for x in the direct variation function.y = 8(7)y = 56Multiply.Rachel will pay the salon owner $56 for 7 cut and styles.
13 Additional Example 3: Money Application Mrs. Perez has $4000 in a CD and $4000 in a money market account. The amount of interest she has earned since the beginning of the year is organized in the following table. Determine whether there is a direct variation between either of the data sets and time. If so, find the equation of direct variation.
14 Additional Example 3 Continued A. interest from CD and timeinterest from CDtime=171= = 17interest from CDtime342The second and third pairs of data result in a common ratio. In fact, all of the nonzero interest from CD to time ratios are equivalent to 17.= = = 17interest from CDtime= =171342513684The variables are related by a constant ratio of 17 to 1.
15 Additional Example 3 Continued B. interest from money market and timeinterest from money markettime= = 19191interest from money markettime= =18.537219 ≠ 18.5If any of the ratios are not equal, then there is no direct variation. It is not necessary to compute additional ratios or to determine whether (0, 0) is included.
