# Module 4

### Variation and Problem Solving

QuestionAnswer
Direct Variation Equation y=kx
Inverse Variation Equation y=k/x
Direct Variation: y=12 x=4 y=kx ; 12=4k ; k=(12/4)=3 ; y=3x
Direct Variation y=4 x=6 y=kx ; 4=6k ; k=(4/6)=2/3 ; y=(2/3)x
Direct Variation y=2 x=1/2 y=kx ; 2=(1/2)k ; k=(2/(1/2))=4 ; y=4x
Inverse Variation y=10 x=15 y=k/x ; 10=k/15 ; k=(10*15)=150 ; y=150/x
Inverse Variation y=2 x=12 y=k/x ; 2=k/12 ; k=(2*12)=24 ; y=24/x
Inverse Variation y=1/5 x=1/2 y=k/x ; 1/5=k/(1/2) ; k=(1/5*1/2)=1/10 ; y=(1/10)/x
Joint Variation y=kxz
a product weighs (y) 100 lbs when it is 8' high (h) by 2'wide (w) . If the weight varies jointly with height and width, what will a 10' high8 by 10' wide piece weigh? y=khw ; 100=k(8)(2) ; 100=16k ; k=6.25 ; y=(6.25)(10)(10) ; y=625
y varies jointly and directly with x and Y the square of w and inversely of z. y=100 when x=10,w=5 and z=12. find y when x=2,w=9 and z=10? y=(kxw^2)/z ; 100=(k(10)(5^2))/12 ; k=4.8 ; y=((4.8)(2)(9^2))/10 ; y=77.76
Y is directly proportional to the square of X: y=2 x=8 Y=kx^2 ; 2=k(8)^2 ; k=1/32 ; Y=(1/32)x^2
Y is inversely proportional to the cube of X : Y=3 X=5 Y=k/x^3 ; 3=k/(5)^3 ; k=375 ; Y=375/x^3

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
