1. Y varies directly as x and y is 2 when x is 3 calculate

y = kx ... sub in your given values for x and y , then solve for k, the constant of proportionality. use your equation to answer A) and B)

A) Y when X is 9

B) X when y = 18

Copy and Complete the following table so that y is directly proportionate to x squared

y = kx^{2} ... same drill as before

x - 0 , BLANK , 3 , 4 , 5 , Blank

y- Blank , 12 , 27, blank , 75 , 192

Skip to some of the harder ones...

p is inversely proportionate to the square root of y . If p = 1.2 when y = 100, calculate

$\displaystyle \color{red}{p = \frac{k}{\sqrt{y}}}$ ... same drill again

A) The value of p when y = 4

B) the value of y when p = 3

(27/8)^{-2/3} = (8/27)^{2/3} ... cube root of 8/27, then square the result

Solve the following questions

3 ^{2x }= 243

note that 243 = 3^{5}
