What are the characteristics of proportional relationships?

Direct proportions may be represented by a straight line through the origin, with the equation y = kx. The gradient of the line is the constant of proportionality and is a measure of the change in the "dependent" variable for a unit change in the "independent" variable. In the case of an inverse proportionality, the graph is a hyperbola with the equation y = k/x. The constant of proportionality, k, is a measure of the change in the reciprocal of the "dependent" variable for a unit change in the "independent" variable.
