I am to find the constant of variation k
m varies directly with n;m = 144 when n =8

I am not sure what it is I am to do. I have no examples to look at
I am thinking that I must do some multiplication 144 x 8
am I correct?

This MEANS:

m = k*n

Whenever you hear that language, write that equation.

Fill in the given information and you nearly are done.
