## anonymous 3 years ago If y varies inversely as x, and y is 352 when x is 829, find y when x is 234. Round your answer to the nearest integer.

1. Ghazi

this is how your y varies with x $y =\frac{ k }{ x }$

2. Ghazi

now you have y=352 when x=829, plug in and find k first $352 =\frac{ k }{ 829 }$

3. anonymous

i'm not sure how to..can you explain please?

4. Ghazi

$k=829*352$

5. anonymous

oh, solve for k

6. Ghazi

and then $y=\frac{ 829*352 }{ 234 }$

thank you so much!
