a. M=20A

b. k=20

c. \$1200

Step-by-step explanation:

Direct proportions

Two variables are proportional if one of them is the other by a real number. That real number is called the Constant of proportionality. If x and y are proportional, then

y=kx, where k is the constant of proportionality.

The question describes the relationship between the amount of money raised at a charity fundraiser and the number of attendees. If they have five attendees, they raise \$100

a.

Let’s call A the number of attendees and M the amount of money raised, and

M=kA

We know that M=100 when A=5, so

100=k(5)

This means that

k=20

The equation for the amount raised at the charity event is

M=20A

b.

The constant of variation is k=20

c. If there are 60 attendees (A=60), then

M=(20)(60)=\$1200
