Variation is a concept that deals with how a variable changes with respect to another variable. Traverse through our printable direct and inverse variation worksheets to keep students informed of the two main types of variation and enlighten them with the respective equations: y = kx, and xy = k. Also, make them well versed in finding the constant of variation by rearranging equations and analyzing the data sets here.

Our batch of pdf worksheets is ideal for high school students.

Direct and Inverse Variation | Equation

This practice worksheet presents linear and polynomial equations. Try rewriting them in the form of y = kx or xy = k, to decide if y varies directly or inversely with respect to x, and find the constant of variation, k.

Direct and Inverse Variation | Equation

Direct and Inverse Variation | Table

Offered here are tables that depict four values for the two variables: x and y. If the ratio of y to x is the same for all values, y varies directly with x. Similarly, if the product of x and y is the same for all values, y varies inversely with x. Identify the type of variation, and write the constant of variation.
