What does this mean? Do I graph this or what?

Find the variation constant and an equation of variation where y varies directly as x and y=12 when x=2

The variation constant =?

The equation of variation is y=?

the statement "y varies directly as x" can be written as

y = kx, where k is the variation constant

we are given y=12 when x=2, so

12 = 2k

k=6,

so the variation constant is 6 and the equation is

y = 6x
