If y = 6 when x = 8, then value of "x" when y = 9 is equal to 12
Given that , In a certain function, y varies directly with x
And x = 8 when y = 6,
We have to find what will be the value of x when y = 9
Now, from the given information,
where c is the proportionality constant
Hence, x value is 12 when y value is 9
we can use this solve for x when y=9
divided both sides by 0.75
so when y=9, x=12
you forgot the options, but i found them anyways, the correct answer is "john wilson believes that words and actions based on the intellect are superior to those based on emotions".
john wilson is depicted as an extremely intelligent man. the point of the excerpt is to make a sort of distinction between emotional and rational intelligence. he happens to have both attributes, but he clearly favors his intellectual gifts. at the same time, because of his religious background, he's a little bit conflicted with this and it makes him ashamed.
hope this !
