Lesson 4-3 Example 4 4-3 Solve. HEALTH The graph shows the ratio of Careta’s height, y, to Careta’s weight, x. Use the graph to find the constant of variation. Interpret the constant of variation. Understand Read the question. Write what you know. The ratio is Careta’s height to Careta’s weight.

Lesson 4-3 Example 4 4-3 Plan Pick a strategy. One strategy is to make a table.

Lesson 4-3 Example 4 4-3 Solve Use the points to make a function table. Find the ratio of Careta’s height to her weight, or. Point A: = Point C: = Point B: =

Lesson 4-3 Example 4 4-3 Solve The ratio is not constant.

Lesson 4-3 Example 4 4-3 Check Verify that the points in the table are on the graph.
