X directly varies with y which means as x increases, y also increases. In this case, we represent a constant of proportionality of k.

Applying laws of <span> proportionality,

x =k y

48 = k* 16

k = 3

when y is 5

x = k y

x = 3* 5

x = 15</span>

The first two were negative integers and the quotient is therefor a positive integer (Two negatives equal a positive)

These are repeating decimals, unlike the first two:

A. 2/5 = 0.4

B. 8/10 = 0.8
