Suppose the constant of variation $k$`k` is positive.

a

If $y$`y` varies directly as $x$`x`, which of the following is true?

When $x$`x` increases, $y$`y` increases. When $x$`x` decreases, $y$`y` decreases.

A

When $x$`x` increases, $y$`y` decreases. When $x$`x` decreases, $y$`y` decreases.

B

When $x$`x` increases, $y$`y` increases. When $x$`x` decreases, $y$`y` increases.

C

When $x$`x` increases, $y$`y` decreases. When $x$`x` decreases, $y$`y` increases.

D

b

If $y$`y` varies inversely as $x$`x`, which of the following is true?

When $x$`x` increases, $y$`y` decreases. When $x$`x` decreases, $y$`y` increases.

A

When $x$`x` increases, $y$`y` increases. When $x$`x` decreases, $y$`y` decreases.

B

When $x$`x` increases, $y$`y` decreases. When $x$`x` decreases, $y$`y` decreases.

C

When $x$`x` increases, $y$`y` increases. When $x$`x` decreases, $y$`y` increases.
