 Question 400306: I'm working on direct variations I've tried to solve this problem and decide whether or not if it is a direct variation; the problem is y=2x+3 and I got No, its not a direct variation is that right. Answer by solver91311(18785)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Pick a number for x -- anything you like. Plug that number into your equation and do the arithmetic to calculate the value of y. Then pick a larger number for x and do the same thing. If y got bigger when x got bigger, then the variation is direct. If y got smaller, the variation is inverse. John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
