If 4 cooks can bake 8 pies in 6 hours????? 2013-03-18
From Kenneth:
Hello:

I want to determine which quantities are directly and inversely proportional in order to determine the answer for the following:.

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.

If x ix directly proportional to y then ... 2012-02-19
From Crystal:
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?

Direct, inverse and indirect proportionality 2009-03-04
From Brian:
My 14 year old is confused about indirectly proportional and inversely proportional. On searching on the internet we were directed to: http://mathcentral.uregina.ca/QQ/database/QQ.09.00/ellis1.html Here leanne starts explaining indirectly proportional and ends up describing inversely proportional. Has Leanne got it wrong ?
What is indirectly proportional.

Thanks
Brian

y varies jointly as x and the square of z and... 2009-01-05
From peter:
I don't really get the terms in this problem. Could you explain it: If y varies jointly as x and the square of z and inversely as the cube of w, by what factor is y increased when z is doubled and w is divided by 3 and x remains the same?
