Algebra PLEASE HELP!

If y varies directly as X and X=88 when Y= 110, find X whaen Y=70


Set up a proportion:
88/110 = X/70. solve for X.

    If y varies directly with x, and y = 110 when x = 100, find the constant of variation k. If y = kx, then 110 = k*100. Solve for k. Check my thinking. Wouldn't I divide 110 by 100=1.1? yes
