In this video the instructor teaches about direct and inverse variation. Two variables x and y are said to be in direct variation with each other if you can write them in the form y = K * x. The value of y varies directly corresponding to the value of x. Y is said to be directly proportional to x. If you have a sample value of x and y, you can substitute the values in the above equation to compute the value of the constant K. Using this formula you can always find the value of one variable x or y, given the value of the other variable as there is a direct variation in between them. This video shows how to find the equation to the direct variation between two variables.
