1. Answer :
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
2. Answer :
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.
3. Answer :
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.
4. Answer :
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
5. Answer :
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
6. Answer :
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
7. Answer :
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
8. Answer :
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.
9. Answer :
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.
10. Answer :
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.
