Question and answer
value of y varies directly with x, and y = 3 when x = 1. Find y when x = -5
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

when x = 1, y = 3 then k = y/x = 3, the equation is y = 3x
when x = -5, y = 3(-5) = - 15

The value of y varies directly with x, and y = 1 when x = 3. Find y when x = 18.
Weegy: 50 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 ] (More)
