EXAMPLE 1 Identify direct variation equations Tell whether the equation represents direct variation. If so, identify the constant of variation. 2x – 3y = 0 a. –x + y = 4 b.

**Identify direct variation equations**

EXAMPLE 1 Identify direct variation equations SOLUTION To tell whether an equation represents direct variation, try to rewrite the equation in the form y = ax. 2x – 3y = 0 Write original equation. –3y = –2x Subtract 2x from each side. y = 2 3 x Simplify. ANSWER Because the equation 2x – 3y = 0 can be rewritten in the form y = ax, it represents direct variation. The constant of variation is . 2 3

3
**Identify direct variation equations**

EXAMPLE 1 Identify direct variation equations b. –x + y = 4 Write original equation. y = x + 4 Add x to each side. ANSWER Because the equation –x + y = 4 cannot be rewritten in the form y = ax, it does not represent direct variation.

4
GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 Tell whether the equation represents direct variation. If so, identify the constant of variation. 1. –x + y = 1 ANSWER not direct variation

5
GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 Tell whether the equation represents direct variation. If so, identify the constant of variation. x + y = 0 ANSWER direct variation; –2

6
GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 Tell whether the equation represents direct variation. If so, identify the constant of variation. x – 5y = 0 ANSWER direct variation; 4 5
