#### Variation

If two quantities depend on each other in such a way that the change in one results in a corresponding change in the other, then the two quantities are said to be in variation.

There are many situations in our daily life where the variation in one quantity brings a variation in the other.

Example:

(i) More articles will cost more.

(ii) More is the money deposited in a bank, more is the interest earned in a fixed period,

(iii) More is the distance covered by a car, more is the petrol consumed by it.

(iv) More is the speed of a car, less is the time taken to cover a fixed distance.

(v) More is the number of workers at a work, less is the time taken to complete the work.

##### Direct Proportion (or Direct Variation)

Two quantities x and y are said to be in direct proportion if whenever the value of x increases (or decreases), then the value of y increases (or decreases) in such a way that the ratio x/y remains constant.

Thus, x and y are in direct proportion, if x/y = k, where k is a constant, i.e.,

X1/y1 = x2/y2 = x3/y3 = ……= k

Example (i), (ii) and (iii) given above are the cases of direct proportion.

Remark: of y increases (or decreases) in such a way that the ratio remains constant. When x and y are in direct proportion, we also say that x and y have a direct variation.

##### A car covers 432 km in 36 litres of petrol. How much distance would it cover in 25 litres of petrol.

Let the required distance be x km. Then, we have:

Car covers 432 km in 36 liters, let, distance covered in 25 liters is x km then,

Clearly, less is the quantity of petrol consumed, less is the distance would it covered. So, it is a case of direct proportion.

36/432 = 25/x

Or, x = (432 x 25)/36 = 300 km

Hence, car covered 300 km. in 25 liters’ petrol.

##### How do you solve direct variations?

Direct variation problems are solved using the equation y = kx. In this case, you should use d for distance and t for time instead of x and y and notice how the word “square” changes the equation.

##### What is a real life example of direct variation?

There are many quantities present in our deal life which have direct and inverse relation.

1) The number of family members are directly expenditures.

2) The number of fruit in kg directly proportional to price of fruit.

3) The number of selling products directly proportional to profit.

4) The number of hours you work and the amount of your paycheck.

5) The amount of weight on a spring and the distance the spring will stretch.

6) The speed of a car and the distance traveled in a certain amount of time.

##### How do you define direct variation?

Direct variation describes a simple relationship between two variables. We say y varies directly with x (or as x, in some textbooks) if: y = kx. for some constant k, called the constant of variation or constant of proportionality.
