Find the constant of variation: word problems

Peter walked a total of 12 kilometres by making 2 trips to school. Later on, he walked 18 kilometres during 3 trips. How many kilometres does Reid walk per trip?

Create a chart.

To find the constant of variation, divide "Total distance walked (kilometres)" by "Number of trips".

The constant of variation is 6.

      At a constant speed, the distance traveled varies directly with time. If a bus driver can drive 215 miles in 5 hours, and 344 miles in 8 hours, what is the constant of variation?
