2, The number of widgets that a manufacturing plant can produce varies jointly as the number of workers and the time that they have worked. Find the constant of proportionality k to 2 decimal places if 550 workers work 3 hours and can produce 16549.5 widgets.

k = _____

How many widgets can be produced by 600 workers in 34 hours?

Widgets = ________

3, Suppose that y is inversely proportional to x.
