Use the point-slope form of each equation to identify a point the line passes through and the slope of the line.

1.y – 3 = – (x – 9)

2.y + 2 = (x – 5)

3.y – 9 = –2(x + 4)

4.y – 5 = – (x + 7)

Learn to recognize direct variation by graphing tables of data and checking for constant ratios.

constant of proportionality

Helpful Hint

The graph of a direct-variation equation is always linear and always contains the point (0, 0). The variables x and y either increase together or decrease together.

Determine whether the data set shows direct variation.

Mrs. Perez has $4000 in a CD and $4000 in a money market account. The amount of interest she has earned since the beginning of the year is organized in the following table. Determine whether there is a direct variation between either of the data sets and time. If so, find the equation of direct variation.

A. interest from CD and time

The second and third pairs of data result in a common ratio. In fact, all of the nonzero interest from CD to time ratios are equivalent to 17.

The variables are related by a constant ratio of 17 to 1, and (0, 0) is included. The equation of direct variation is y = 17x, where x is the time, y is the interest from the CD, and 17 is the constant of proportionality.
