# If a point on a line is (2, 6) and y varies directly to x, find y when x is 6

Posted by Anonymous on

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
goodluck!

so y = 2(-x)
if x is -6, minus x is +6
and 2 times +6 is 12

### Find equation line

3x-7y=2 is an equation of a line. That line doesn't go through the point (6, -7) though. Are you looking for the equation of a line through the point parallel to the first line? Perpendicular?

### Find tdc and adjust valves on a 325 i

With the tappet cover off, rotate the engine in the normal direction of rotation until you see #4 cylinder valves rock - open/close in succession. This will be TDC on #1 - set the valve clearances. Turn the engine until your see #2 valves rock, set #5 valves, turn the engine till #6 valves rock, set # 3 valves, turn the engine until #3 valves rock, set # 6 valves, turn engine till #5 valves rock, set # 2 valves, turn engine till #1 valves rock, set # 4 valves. Once you have located #1 TDC (the second mark in the pulley should be lined up with the cover mark), it is only 60 deg. to get to the next cylinder to set. If you accidentally go past the setting point, go back and approach the setting point again in the direction of engine rotation. When you come to setting # 6 the TDC marks should be aligned again.

### Equation of line between to points

Example: Equation of the line through (1,5) and (3,6)
Calculate the slope (gradient) of the line as a=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1) where y2=6, y1=5, x2=3, and x1=1. You should get a=(6-5)/(3-1)=1/2
The equation is y=(1/2)x PLUS b, where b is not known yet.

To find b, substitute the coordinates of one of the points in the equation. Let us do it for (3,6).

The point (3,6) lies on the line, so 6=3/2 PLUS b.
Solve for b: 6 MINUS 3/2=b, or b=9/2=4.5
Equation is thus y=(x/2) PLUS 9/2 =(x PLUS 9)/2

### If y varies directly as the square of x,and y=24 when x=4,find the constant of variation

y varies directly as the square of x means:

y = kx^2

Where,

k is the constant of variation. You can use any letter except y or x for constant

Put values of y and x: (24) = k * (4)^2

k = 24/(4*4) = 24/16 = 3/2 = 1.5

Answer: The constant of variation is 1.5

### Find an equation of the line containing the given pair of points (1,5)and(3,6)

Calculate the slope (gradient) of the line as a=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1) where y2=6, y1=5, x2=3, and x1=1. You should get a=(6-5)/(3-1)=1/2
The equation is y=(1/2)x PLUS b, where b is not known yet.

To find b, substitute the coordinates of one of the points in the equation. Let us do it for (3,6).

The point (3,6) lies on the line, so 6=3/2 PLUS b.
Solve for b: 6 MINUS 3/2=b, or b=9/2=4.5
Equation is thus y=(x/2) PLUS 9/2 =(x PLUS 9)/2
