## Homework Statement

Its a series of problems essentially basically asking questions about solving proportionality

. For example

"Hooke's Law of a spring can be described by the equation F = -kx, where F is the force exerted by a spring, K us the spring constant, and X is the amount of distance a spring has been stretched.

A. Determine how much the force exerted by spring changes if K is tripled. B. Determine force exerted if X is decreased by a factor of 5. C. Determine the force exerted by a spring if the spring constant is decreased by a factor of three and X is quadrupled. D. Use the method of literal equations to isolate the spring constant and determine the dimensions in units of the spring constant.

## Homework Equations

F= -kx

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried to take the approach of it increasing as the k or x increased, but I'm honestly lost lol. Please help
