### What is used to show the relationship between two variables?

In mathematics? This is what's called a relation.
For example, the relation y=4x shows that for any given x value,
the value of y is four times as great.
If y is equal to 8 and the relationship between y and x can be
shown by the relation y is equal to four times x, x must equal 8
divided by four. Eight divided by four is 2, therefore x is equal
to 2.
If x is equal to 6 and the relation ship between y and x can be
shown by the relation y is equal to four times x, y must equal 6
multiplied by four. Six multiplied by four is 24, therefor y is
equal to 24.
