nyprincess2001 one year ago [4.05] MA.7.A.1.5 Which of the following represents inverse variation?

1. nyprincess2001

y divided by x equals negative three-fourths y equals negative two times x y equals ten divided by x y equals one plus x

2. ColossalMagnitude

The first one would be: |dw:1383608878897:dw| Does that look like inverse variation to you?

3. nyprincess2001

yes

4. ColossalMagnitude

An inverse variation graph is not linear, so how would that be an inverse variation?

5. nyprincess2001

because it straight

6. ColossalMagnitude

But an inverse variation graph is not linear, and linear means straight, so how would that be an inverse variation?

7. nyprincess2001

it wouldnt be

8. ColossalMagnitude

Okay, good, you are correct. The second one would be: |dw:1383609363352:dw| Does that look like inverse variation to you?

9. nyprincess2001

no

10. ColossalMagnitude

Okay, good, you are correct. The third one would be: |dw:1383609439159:dw| Does that look like inverse variation to you?

11. nyprincess2001

yes

12. ColossalMagnitude

Good, you are correct. So, the answer would be "y equals ten divided by x".

13. nyprincess2001

wow that was easier than i thought thanks!

14. ColossalMagnitude

You welcome.
