HERE are a few examples from my textbook

The mass of the sugar increases when the number of sugar increases

Here you can conclude that when one element increases the other element increases..We can say that there is a direct relationship in a way that $\frac{x 1}{y 1} = \frac{x 2}{y 2}$

where x1 and x2 are the same element and y1 and y2 are the same element
