# If N Varies Directly as M, Complete the Following Table. - SSC (English Medium) Class 8 - Mathematics

#### Question

If n varies directly as m, complete the following table.

 m 3 5 6.5 ... 1.25 n 12 20 ... 28 ...

#### Solution

It is given that n varies directly as m i.e.

$n \propto m$
∴ n = km, where k is constant of variation

When m = 3, n = 12.

∴ 12 = k × 3

⇒ k = 4

So, the equation of variation is n = 4m.

When m = 6.5,

n = 4 × 6.5 = 26

When n = 28,

28 = 4n

⇒ n = 7

When m = 1.25,

n = 4 × 1.25 = 5

The complete table is given below.
 m 3 5 6.5 7 1.25 n 12 20 26 28 5

Is there an error in this question or solution?
