Bryan works a part-time job and his paycheck total varies directly with the number
of hours that he works. Write a direct variation equation that relates Brian’s total
paycheck and number of hours if he makes \$111 for working 12 hours.
How much will Bryan earn if he works 23 hours?
How many hours does Bryan work if he makes \$157.25

The variables x and y vary inversely. Use the given values to write an equation
relating x and y. Then find y when x = 3.
x = 5, y = -4
x = 1, y = 9
The number of hours, h, it takes for a block of ice to melt varies inversely as the
temperature, t. Write an equation that relates number of hours with temperature if
it takes 2 hours for a square inch of ice to melt at 65&ordm;F.
How long would it take for an inch of ice to melt at 100&ordm;F?
