Chapter 5 - Linear Functions - 5-2 Direct Variation - Practice and Problem-Solving Exercises - Page 305: 29

No, this table does not represent a direct variation since the constant of variation is not the same for each point.

Work Step by Step

In order for a table to represent a direct variation, the ratio of y/x needs to be constant so lets divide each y value with its respective x value: 1/-2=-0.5 6/3=2 11/8=1.375 Since the ratio is not constant, we can deduce that the table cannot be represented by a direct variation.
