Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If y varies inversely with x that means as y increases, then x decreases. I.e., y = k/x for some constant k. If you can determine this constant of proportionality, k, then you have the expression you seek. You are given y = 4 when x = 15. 4 = k/15. Solve for k.
