To determine

To find:

The possible grow gigantic cabbages in the midnight sun

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 45E

The equation of the value is k=36lb

Explanation of Solution

Given:

  A=20ozN=12cabbageS=30lb

Concept used:

If the quantities x and y are related by an equation

  y=kx

For some constant k0

That is y varies inversely as x or y is inversely proportional to x

The constant k is called constant proportionality

Calculation:

If the quantities S,A and N are related by an equation

  SαAN

  S=kAN

For some constant k0

That is v varies inversely z or v is inversely proportional to z

The constant k is called constant proportionality

  A=20ozN=12cabbageS=30lb

The value of k

  S=kAN30=k(20)12k=30×1220k=36lb
