# Direct Variation Calculator

The direct variation calculator helps you calculate the direct proportionality between the two variables.

Enter the variables x and y to find the direct proportionality constant (k).

You can also enter any one variable and direct proportionality constant to calculate the remaining variable.

Direct variation is a phenomenon where two quantities change together and depend on each other.

Direct variation happens when two variables maintain a constant ratio, meaning that changes in one variable directly impact the other. This relationship is denoted by the equation y = kx, where k represents the constant of variation.

You might also want to determine the diamond problem values or find out the partial sum.
