    Practical Implications

    What practical implications does this math formula Y1/X=Y2 have?

    Re: Practical Implications

    I have no idea what you mean by "practical implications". Certainly Y1/X= Y2 is the same as Y1= Y2X but either of those equations could be applied to many different situations. If X is constant, then Y1 and Y2 are in direct proportion. If Y2 is constant, then X and Y1 are in direct proportion. If Y1 is constant, then X and Y2 are in indirect proportion.

    Re: Practical Implications

    Thanks for the information HallsofIvy! Can you please give me examples in the real world where this formula could be used to help you?

    BobP I don't know much about maths at all. I was just thinking and this math formula came into my head and I was wondering what practical implications could it have if any, so that is why I asked the question, "What practical implications does this math formula have"

    Best regards James

    Your problem is still very vague. Perhaps you might be thinking of something along the lines of Y1 = net force = F, Y2 = acceleration = a. The we have from experimentation F = Xa, (net force is directly proportional to the acceleration)which from the data implies X = mass = m.
