Peaches are being sold for $2 per pound. If x represents the number of pounds of peaches bought and y represents the total cost of the peaches, which best describes the values of x and y? The values of both x and y can be any real number. The values of both x and y will be real numbers greater than or equal to 0. The value of x can be any real number, but the value of y will always be a real number greater than or equal to 0. The value of x can be any real number greater than or equal to 0, but the value of y must be an integer greater than or equal to 0.

Given: Peaches = $2 per pound x = number of pounds y = total cost of the peaches. y = 2x   This is a direct variation equation. Where y varies directly with the value of x. The values of both x and y will be real numbers greater than or equal to 0. x            y = 2x 0            0 1            2  2            4 3            6  4            8 5           10
