  9. Solving for k:
    E=km
    300=k(48)
    Divide both side by 48
    300/48=k(48)/48
    Then cancel out
    300/48=k
    k=6.25

    Solving for m:
    E:km
    Just substitute the given values
    65=6.25(m)
    65=6.25m
    Divide both side by 6.25
    65/6.25= 6.25m/6.25
    Cancel out
    65/6.25=m
    10.4
