    \[y=\frac{k}{x^3}\] put(8,12) then find k

    after since you have k put x=1 to get y

    yes\[y=\frac{ k }{\sqrt[3]{x} }\] thanks @zepdrix

    Ifound 12=k/8^3 (y=k/x^3 with substitutions) ~12=1644/8^3

    so now find y when x=1\[y=\frac{24}{\sqrt[3]{1}}\]

    @zepdrix does this mean y=24 is the answer to the entire question?
