If the point (6,3) lies on the graph of a direct variation, what is the constant of variation?

1 Answer

2

Answer:

k = 0.5

Step-by-step explanation:

Given

(x,y) = (6,3)

Required

Determine the constant of variation

Since it is a direct variation, the following relationship exists:

y = kx

Where k represents the constant.

Substitute 6 for x and 3 for y

3 = k * 6

3 = 6k

Make k the subject

k = \frac{3}{6}

k = 0.5

Hence, the constant of variation is 0.5
