User: The value of y varies directly with x, and y = 1 when x = 3. Find y when x = 18.

Weegy: we can model this in terms of a linear equation. y=mx+b Since the question states that y varies directly with x, we know that m (the slope of the line) is 1. [ so: y=x+b Now, to solve for be we can sub in the two known values for x and y to complete our equation. 6=2+b b=6-2 =4 So our final equation for the line is: y=x+4 when x=5 y=(5)+4 =9 ]

y varies directly with x, the expression should be y = kx.
y = 1 when x = 3, that is 3k = 1, so k = 1/3, the equation is y = (1/3)x, when x = 18, y = (1/3)(18) = 6

The value of y varies directly with x, then y = kx,
when x = 1, y = 3 then k = y/x = 3, the equation is y = 3x
when x = -5, y = 3(-5) = - 15
