Variation / Proportional

Direct Variation / Directly Proportional

y is directly proportional to x, y ∝ x:
 
$ y = kx $

k = constant of proportionality
y varies directly as x is another statement equivalent to the above statement.

 

Inverse Variation / Directly Proportional

y is inversely proportional to x, y ∝ 1/x:
 
$ y = \dfrac{k}{x} $

k = constant of proportionality
