Weegy: y varies directly with x, and k = 1/2, the equation is y = 1/2x
when y = 14,
1/2x = 14
x = 14(2) = 28
The value of x is 28 when y = 14

The value of y varies directly with x, and y = 1 when x = 3.
The equation is y = kx where k is the constant.
k = y/x = 1/3
The equation is y = 1/3x
When x = 18, y = (1/3)*18 = 18/3 = 6

The value of y varies directly with x, the equation is y = kx.
y = 3 when x = 6.
3 = 6k, k = 3/6 = 1/2.
The equation is y = 1/2x
When x = 1, y = 1/2(1) = 1/2

The value of y varies directly with x, and y = 12 when x = 6.
The equation is y = kx where k is the contant.
And k = y/x = 12/6 = 2
The equation is y = 2x
when x = 4, y = 2(4) = 8

The value of y varies directly with x, and y = 4 when x = 10.
The equation is y = kx where k is the constant.
With given values we get k = y/x = 4/10 = 2/5
the equation is y = (2/5)x
when x = 1, y = (2/5) * 1 = 2/5 = 0.4

The value of y varies directly with x, and y = 3 when x = 1.
The equation is y = kx where k is the constant.
k = y/x = 3/1 = 3
The equation is y = 3x.
When x = 5, y = 3(5) = 15

The value of y varies directly with x, the equation is y = kx where k is the constant. y = 1 when x = 2, substitute the value in the model: 2k = 1, k = 1/2.
The equation is y = 1/2x. When x = 4, y = (1/2)*4 = 2
