Direct Variations Using Unitary Method

Now we will learn how to solve direct variations using unitary method.

We know, the two quantities may be linked in such a way that if one increases, other also increases. If one decreases, the other also decreases.


Some situations of direct variations:

● More articles, more money required to purchase.

● More men at work, more work will be done.

● More speed, more distance covered in fixed time.

● More money borrowed, more interest to be paid.

● More working hours, more work will be done.

Solved examples on direct variations using unitary method:

1. The cost of 3 kg of sugar is $ 60. What will the cost of 8 kg of sugar be?

Solution:

This is a situation of direct variation, now we solve using unitary method.

Cost of 3 kg of sugar = $ 60

Cost of 1 kg of sugar = $ 60/3 = $ 20

Cost of 8 kg of sugar = $ 20 × 8

Therefore, cost of 8 kg of sugar = $ 160


2. If 13 books cost 169, what do 30 books cost?

Solution:

This is a situation of direct variation, now we solve using unitary method.

Cost of 13 books = $ 169.

Cost of 1 book = $ 169/13 = $ 13.

Cost of 30 books = $ 13 × 30.

Therefore, cost of 30 books = $ 390.


3. A labourer gets $ 684 for 9 days. How many days should he work to get $ 912?

Solution:

This is also a situation of direct variation, now we solve using unitary method.

For $ 684, the labourer works 9 days.

For $ 1, the labourer works 9/684 days.

For $ 912, the labourer works 9/684 × 912 days.

Therefore, for $ 912, the labourer works 12 days.
