# Following are the car parking charges near a railway station upto

4 hours ₹60

8 hours ₹100

12 hours ₹140

24 hours ₹180

Check if the parking charges are in direct proportion to the parking time

**Solution:**

If two quantities are related in such a way that an increase or decrease in one quantity leads to a corresponding proportional increase or decrease in the other, then such a variation is called direct proportion.

Let's find the parking charge for 1 hour in all the four cases shown below:

We have:

60/4 = 15/1 = ₹15

100/8 = 25/2 = ₹12.5

140/12 = 35/3 = ₹11.67

180/24 = 15/2 = ₹7.50

We see that the 1 hour charge in all the four cases shown below is not equal.

Thus, the parking charges are not in direct proportion.
