The time required to fill the bags of milk varies directly as the time required to fill the bags.

Let the number of minutes be x and the number of bags be y.

Here, x varies directly as y i.e. \[x \propto y\] .

∴ x = ky, where is k is constant of variation

When x = 3, y = 120.

∴ 3 = k × 120

⇒ k = \[\frac{3}{120} = \frac{1}{40}\]

So, the equation of variation is  \[x = \frac{1}{40}y\] .

When y = 1800,

\[x = \frac{1}{40} \times 1800 = 45\]

Thus, the time required to fill 1800 bags with milk is 45 minutes.
