Unit # 3 Variations

Exercise # 3.2
Question# 1
If y varies directly as x, and y = 8 when x = 2, find (i) y in terms of x (ii) y when x = 5 (iii) x when y = 28

Solution:
(i) y x y = kx 8 = k (2) =k 4=k So, y = 4x (ii) y = 4x y=4X5 y = 20 y = 4x 28 = 4x =x 7=x x=7

(iii)

Question# 2
If y x , and y = 7 when x = 3 , find (ii) x when y = 35 and y when x = 18

(i) y in terms of x

Solution:
(i) y x

y = kx 7 = k(3) =k So, y = x (ii) y = x 35 = x 35 X 3 = 7x 105 = 7x =x 15 = x and y = x y = (18) y = 7(6) y = 42
