Again, you start with the equation\[y=\frac{k}{x}\]since it's inversely proportional. What should we now put in for x and y?

We're assuming x is the number of people, and y is the cost per person. We know that when 44 people go, it costs 30 dollars per person. So we use y=30 and x=44.

That's your \(k\), but not the price per person. Now you need to go back to \[y=\frac{k}{x}\] except now you know k, and you're told to find y when x=60.
