Please help I am so confused...
Question:
supposed that y is directly proportional to x.
a) use the given info to find constant of proportionally k.
b) then use y=kx to find y for x=6
y= 62 when x=5
Please help.. thank you
this is all I have so far. not sure if I am correct.
y=kx
62= k*(5)
but then how do I solve for k?
