## Answers ( No )

Put the numbers in the given equation and solve for k.

… $11 = k·(8 €)

Divide by the coefficient of k:

… k = $11/(8 €) = 1.375 $/€

Then your equation is …

…

y = (1.375 $/€)x_____

It is fairly common to leave the units out of such equations, assuming that everyone understands that x is in euros and y is in dollars and the conversion factor includes a unit change from euros to dollars. Thus, you might expect to see …

…

y = 1.375·x
