Direct proportion at a glance


If two amounts are proportional then the ratio between them is always the same. Proportional relationships can be direct or inverse. In direct proportion, as one amount increases or decreases, the other does the same.


We encounter proportional relationships and solve basic problems involving proportion regularly in our daily lives. For example, in cooking, we might know how much flour is needed to make 12 cupcakes and we can use that information to work out how much flour is needed to make 30 cupcakes.


For more complicated proportional relationships, we can find the constant of proportionality and use this to write a formula connecting the two values. Let y be directly proportional to x, then the constant of proportionality k is equal to y divided by x.


Looking forward, students can then progress to additional ratio and proportion worksheets, for example a ratio worksheet or a  ratio worksheet.


For more teaching and learning support on Ratio and Proportion our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.
