Representing Proportional Relationships with Equations

Math On the Spot my.hrw.com

The ratio of the distance in miles to the distance in leagues is constant. This relationship is said to be proportional. A proportional relationship is a relationship between two quantities in which the ratio of one quantity to the other quantity is constant. A proportional relationship can be described by an equation of the form y = kx, where k is a number called the constant of proportionality. y

Sometimes it is useful to use another form of the equation, k = _x .

EXAMPLE 1 Meghan earns $12 an hour at her part-time job. Show that the relationship between the amount she earned and the number of hours she worked is a proportional relationship. Then write an equation for the relationship.
