Find the variation constant and an equation of variation where Y varies directly as X and Y=60 when X=10

k=variation constant
y=equation of variation

    y=mx+b or y=kx+b (m is the standard symbol, which came to us 300 years ago from the French Academy, headed by Rene Descartes. It has served us well as the symbol for slope).


    No since you state y varies directly as x, this implies b=0

    Yikes, so K=0 and y=6? Help please..
