If y varies directly as x and y is 3 when x is 8, what is the constant of the variation?

I don't understand what they are asking and how to solve this. Please help if you can! Thank you so much! :)

  • Algebra (please help!) - ,

    y proportional to x (I can't make the proportional sign on my calculator).
    If it is directly proportinal, then
    then we can add an equal sign and a k to replace the proportional sign.
    y = kx
    Now if y = 3 and x= 8, then k = y/x = 3/8
