w=2, x=5, y=4, and z=9

So i think the equation is y=xz/w

But what is the constant of proportionalit supposed to mean?

- Calc -
**Steve**, Monday, October 3, 2011 at 5:29amYou're almost right.

y = kxz/w, where k is the constant of proportionality.

Plugging in your values,

4 = k*5*9/2

8 = 45k

k = 8/45
