**Directly Proportional**.

**Directly proportional**: as one amount increases, another amount increases at the same rate.

Likewise, people ask, what is direct proportion with examples?

In such situations, two quantities are termed to exist in **direct proportion**. Some more **examples** are: Speed is directly proportional to distance. The cost of the fruits or vegetable increases as the weight for the same increases.

Also, what is inversely proportional? Updated September 05, 2018. **Inverse proportion** is the relationship between two variables when their product is equal to a constant value. When the value of one variable increases, the other decreases, so their product is unchanged. y is **inversely proportional** to x when the equation takes the form: y = k/x.

Also to know, what is direct and indirect proportion?

Two values are said to be in **direct proportion** when an increase in one results in an increase in the other. Similarly, they are said to be in **indirect proportion** when the increase in one results in a decrease in the other.

What is the difference between proportional and directly proportional?

**Proportional** means that **between** two variables, if a change in one is always followed by a change **in the** other, and if the changes are always **related** by use of a constant multiplier. If one variable is the product of other and a constant, then the two can be said as **directly proportional**.
