The distance a spring will stretch varies directly with how much weight is attached to the spring. If a spring stretches 9 inches with 100 pounds attached, how far will it stretch with 90 pounds attached? Round to the nearest tenth of an inch.

Let the distance a string will stretch be l, and the weight attached to the string be w, then l = kw. 9 = 100k => k = 9/100. l = 9/100 w. Therefore, when a weight of 90 pounds is attached, l = 9 / 100 x 90 = 810 / 100 = 8.1 inches.Hope I helped! :) Cheers!I hope that I could help :) sometines those questions are tricky.
