# Solving Variation Problems

Additional Resources:

In this lesson, we will learn about the different types of variation and how to set up and solve variation problems. We will discuss direct variation, inverse variation, joint variation, combined variation, and variation with powers. Although the different types of variation have different formulas involved, the basic procedure is always the same. We would first write out our model. Once this is done, we can use the initial information to solve for k, the constant of variation. Then we can plug the known value for k into the model and find the answer to our problem.
