STEP 1

Write a general joint variation equation.

STEP2

Use the given values of z, x, and y to find the constant of variation a.

EXAMPLE 5

Write a joint variation equation

The variable zvaries jointly with xand y. Also, z= –75 when x = 3 and y = –5. Write an equation that relates x, y, and z. Then find zwhen x = 2 and y = 6.

SOLUTION

z = axy

–75 = a(3)(–5)

Substitute 75 for z, 3 for x, and 25 for y.

–75 = –15a

Simplify.

5 = a

Solve for a.

STEP 3

Rewrite the joint variation equation with the value of afrom Step 2.

STEP 4

Calculate zwhen x = 2 and y = 6 using substitution.
