V=IR, from this equation it's clear that V is directly proportional to I and R..

I=V/R, from this equation it's clear that I is directly proportional to V and inversely proportional to R.

But when V is directly proportional to R and I is directly proportional to V then why is I not directly proportional to R?

**Q.**

The Ohm's law states that at constant temperature the current flowing through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference across its ends . This means that I proportional to V. Two equate this we need to add a constant. This we get V=R*I . But why can't we write the same equation by adding a constant on the other side as I=R*V . How do we know which side to add the constant and how?
