Need some Homework help for my son and I am not doing so great figuring out the correct answer- all explanations a greatly appreciated..... he has the following 3 part word problem.

Josh mows lawns after school and earns $25 for each lawn mowed.

1. write a direct variation equation that relates the number of lawns Josh mows with the total amount of money he earns

2. What is the constant variation?

3. Josh earns an extra $15 for weeding a neighbors garden. The total amount of money (a) Josh makes with this extra $15 can be modeled by a=25L + 15. Is this a direct variation equation? Explain

Thanks!
