Chapter 5 - Linear Functions - 5-2 Direct Variation - Practice and Problem-Solving Exercises: 15

Answer

$y=-5x;-60$

Work Step by Step

start with the function form of a direct variation $y=kx$ now substitute 2 for x and -10 for y $-10=k(2)$ divide both sides by 2 and solve for $k$ $\frac{-10}{2}=\frac{k(2)}{2}$ $k=-5$ write an equation and substitute -5 for k. $y=-5x$ Now solve for x=12 $y=-5(12)$ $y=-60$
