    Answer:

    l=6a,

    Where,

    a = number of ants,

    l = number of legs.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given,

    The number of legs an ant has = 6,

    The number of legs a ants have ( say l ) = a × 6

    \implies l = 6a

    ∵ by the equation,

    We get,

    I ∝ a

    i.e. the required proportional relation is,

    l=6a

    Note : a relation is called proportional if output value is directly proportional to input value.
