Math 1310 Class Notes – Section 3.3, Page 1 of 7 Math 1310 Section 3.3 Variation (Proportions) You’ll be asked to solve some problems involving functions using variation. We’ll consider three types of variation. Variation formulas Direct variation : We say y varies directly as x , or y is directly proportional to x , if , y kx = where k is a constant ( 29 0 . k Inverse variation : We say y varies inversely as x , or y is inversely proportional to x , if , k y x = where k is a constant ( 29 0 . k Joint variation : We way y varies jointly as x and z , or y is jointly proportional to x and z , if , y kxz = where k is a constant ( 29 0 . k In each instance above, k is called the constant of proportionality.
