math

it is given that y is directly proportional to xn. write down the value of n when (i) y m square is the area of a square length x m . (ii) y cm cube is the volume of a cube of length x cm.

  1. y = k x^n maybe ?

    if y = x^2 then n = 2

    if y = x^3 then n = 3

  3. y=k x^n (Directly proportional)

    (i) y m^2 = x^2 (area of a square is x multiplied by x so “x^2”)
    So “n” in that question would be “2”.

    (ii) y cm^2 = x^3 (volume of a cube is x multiplied by x multiplied by x so “x^3”)
    So “n” in that question would be “3”.

    I tried to explain it more properly. :’)
