this variation is of the form

here the variables are

understanding the variation through an example :

**Assigning random values to #color(red)(y#**

# color(red)(y)# = 1 ,#color(blue)(x) = 5.1 = 5# #color(red)(y# =2 ,#color(blue)(x) = 5.2 = 10# #color(red)(y# = 3 ,#color(blue)(x) = 5.3= 15#

By observing an increase of one of the variables with respect to another we can come to a conclusion that **the variation is direct** .

As

Looking at a more practical example.

**Distance= (Speed)x( Time )**

Here as speed **increases** , the distance then covered would also **increase** , thus there is a **direct variation.**
