General form of inverse variation equations x*y = k k is the constant of variation

  • jim_thompson5910
x*y = k can be rewritten into \(\LARGE y = \frac{k}{x}\) after solving for x

the answer is practically given to you compare x*y = k to the equation you have x*y = -16 you'll see what the value of k must be

yeah k = -16
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so -16 is the constant of variation
