what does it mean when they say tell wheather the equation represents direct variation. if so then give the constant of variaton

the problem is:
2y-5x=0

• algebra 2 -

y= 5x/2 So as x doubles, so does y. That is a direct variation.

The constant here is 5/2

• algebra 2 -

so it is just the slope of the line??

• algebra 2 -

yes.

alrigth thanks
