DIRECT VARIATION

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger.

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger. For Example:

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger. For Example: The more food Ando eats, the more weight he gains.

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger. For Example: The more food Ando eats, the more weight he gains. When the amount of food Ando eats goes up, the amount of weight he gains goes up.

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger. For Example: The more food Ando eats, the more weight he gains. When the amount of food Ando eats goes up, the amount of weight he gains goes up. As an equation it would look like this:

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger. For Example: The more food Ando eats, the more weight he gains. When the amount of food Ando eats goes up, the amount of weight he gains goes up. As an equation it would look like this: W is Ando’s weight.

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger. For Example: The more food Ando eats, the more weight he gains. When the amount of food Ando eats goes up, the amount of weight he gains goes up. As an equation it would look like this: W is Ando’s weight. E is the amount Ando eats.

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger. For Example: The more food Ando eats, the more weight he gains. When the amount of food Ando eats goes up, the amount of weight he gains goes up. As an equation it would look like this: W is Ando’s weight. E is the amount Ando eats. K is ALWAYS the constant amount that he gains.

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger. For Example: The more food Ando eats, the more weight he gains. When the amount of food Ando eats goes up, the amount of weight he gains goes up. As an equation it would look like this: W is Ando’s weight. E is the amount Ando eats. K is ALWAYS the constant amount that he gains. K is called the “constant of variation”.

DIRECT VARIATION When one thing gets larger, the other gets larger. For Example: The more food Ando eats, the more weight he gains. When the amount of food Ando eats goes up, the amount of weight he gains goes up. As an equation it would look like this: W is Ando’s weight. E is the amount Ando eats. K is ALWAYS the constant amount that he gains. K is called the “constant of variation”. W = KE
