ANSWER

When the value of x is 12, then,

EXPLANATION

The statement, y varies directly as x is written nathematically as

If we introduce the constant of proportionality, then we can write the equation,

where k is the constant of proportionality. It is also called the constant of variation.

If

, then the direct variation equation becomes.

When

, then

This simplifies to
