EXAMPLE 3 Write and use a direct variation equation The graph of a direct variation equation is shown. y = ax y = ax Write direct variation equation. Substitute. 2 = a (–1) Write the direct variation equation. a.a. Find the value of y when x = 30. b.b. SOLUTION Because y varies directly with x, the equation has the form y = ax. Use the fact that y = 2 when x = –1 to find a. a.a. Solve for a. –2 = a
