If it is to be direct, the it would be: the larger x gets, the larger y gets. This is not the case, so it is an inverse relation. There is a simple formula that goes with it: xy = constant. That gives it (practically) away...

You have found it! The constant I've been telling you about is 72. So xy=72, or y=72/x
