If 4 cooks can bake 8 pies in 6 hours, 2 cooks can bake how many pies in 4 hours? Answer: 2 2/3 pies Can someone fully explain what I need to know in order to determine what is directly and inversely proportional in the example above? I thank you for your reply.Robert Dawson lui répond.

If x ix directly proportional to y then ... 2012-02-19 Crystal pose la question :I understand that we say x and y are proportional, then y = kx. Generally when we say x is proportional to y, we think that when x increases y increases. Now I am questioning whether that is actually true. If k is negative, then when x increases, y DECREASES. My question is does this mean this statement is incorrect: If x is proportional to y, when x increases, y increases proportionally. Is it more correct to say: If x is proportional to y, when x increases, y either increases proportionally or decreases proportionally. Along the same line of reasoning, when x is inversely proportional to y, we think that when x increases y decreases, but that is true only if k is positive. Is that correct?Harley Weston lui répond.      Page1/1    Centrale des maths reçoit une aide financière de l’Université de Regina et de The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.
