I would agree with Pickslides but that would make the answer wrong!

Hence, I will not agree with Pickslides!

No matter what point you choose on the curve,

placing the co-ordinates of the point into the equation

must always give the**same value of k.**

Hence, given the point (3,3) is on the curve,

it will yield the same constant k that any other point on the curve will yield.
