This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

less number of basket balls -----> cost will be less

Given : 75 basketballs cost \$1,143.75

Cost of one basket ball is

=  1143.75/75

=  \$15.25

Then, the cost of 26 basket balls is

=  26  15.25

=  396.50

Hence, the cost of 26 basket balls is \$ 396.50

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

more gallons of juice -----> amount received will be more

Given : 2 gallons of juice cost \$4

Cost of one gallon of juice is

=  4/2

=  \$2

Cost of 17 gallons of juice is

=  17  2

=  \$34

Hence, David will earn \$34 by selling 17 gallons of juice.

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

more miles -----> cost will be more

Given : Cost for 15 miles is \$40.50

Cost for one mile is

=  40.50/15

=  \$2.70

Then, the cost for 20 miles is

=  20 ⋅ 2.70

=  54

Hence, the cost for 20 miles is \$54.

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

more time  -----> more earning

Given : Earning for 2.5 years is \$7500

Earning for 1 year  is

=  7500/2.5

=  \$3000

Then, earning for 4 years is

=  4  3000

=  \$12000

Hence, the earning for 4 years is \$12000

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

less number of weeks ----> amount raised will be less

Given : Miguel raised \$2,372.50 in 36.5 weeks

Amount raised in one week is

=  2372.5/36.5

=  \$65

Amount raised in 20 weeks is

=  65  20

=  \$1300

Hence, the money raised in 20 weeks is \$1300

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

more hours -----> more earning

Pay for 1/7 hour of work  =  \$2/5

Pay for 1 hour of work is

=  (2/5)/(1/7)

=  (2/5) ⋅ (7/1)

=  14/5

=  \$2.8

Then, pay for 3 hours of work is

=  2.8  3

=  8.4

Hence, Shanel gets \$8.4 for 3 hours of work

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

more gasoline  -----> more cost

Cost of 3/35 of a gallon  =  \$1/5

Cost of 1 gallon is

=  (1/5)/(3/35)

=  (1/5) ⋅ (35/3)

=  7/3

=  2.3

Hence, the cost of 1 gallon of gasoline is \$ 2.30

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

more miles -----> more cost

Cost for one mile  =  \$2.25

Cost of 300 miles is

=  2.25 ⋅ 300

=  \$675

Hence, the total cost for the trip is \$675.

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

less units -----> less cost

Cost of 330 units  =  \$495

Cost of 1 unit is

=  495/330

=  1.5

Cost of 270 units is

=  1.5  270

=  \$405

Hence, John has to pay \$405 for 270 units.

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because,

less hours -----> less earning

Given : Earning in 8 hours  =  \$ 416

Earning in 1 hour  =  \$ 52

Earning in 2.8 hours  =  52  2.8  =  145.6

Hence, Mr. David will earn \$145.6 in 2.8 hours.
