# Worksheet on Direct variation using Method of Proportion

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on direct variation using method of proportion.

We know, in direct variation if one increases, other also increases and if one decreases, the other also decreases.

In direct variation: $$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}} = \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}$$

or,$$\frac{a_{1}}{b_{1}} = \frac{a_{2}}{b_{2}}$$

For examples of direct variation:

● More working hours, more work will be done.

Less working hours, less work will be done.

● More workers at work, more work is done.

Less workers at work, less work is done.

1. A man spends Rs. 2080 in 13 days. How much will he spend in 30 days?
