If x and r are directly proportional and x = 5 when r = 25, then what is x when r = 40?

I'm pretty sure the answer is 8, because when **r** = 25 and **x** = 5, you have to divide **r** by 5 to get **x**. This way, because 40/5 is 8, I think that would be the answer you're looking for.

So *x = 8.*
