If the weight of 5 sheets of paper is 20 grams, how many sheets of the same paper would weigh 1 kg?

Expert Answer:

It is clear that the number of sheets and their corresponding weight vary directly.

Also 1 kg = 1000 grams.

Writing the information in the table, we have

Number of sheets



Weight (in grams)



Now, in case of direct variation the ratio remains constant, so we have

Hence, number of sheets are 250.
