# Find the Constant of Variation y=72 , x=3

y=72 , x=3
When two variable quantities have a constant ratio, their relationship is called a direct variation. It is said that one variable varies directly as the other. The formula for direct variation is y=kx, where k is the constant of variation.
y=kx
Solve the equation for k, the constant of variation.
k=yx
Replace the variables x and y with the actual values.
k=723
Divide 72 by 3.
k=24
