Ok, the first thing to look for are the words you don't understand. What does the word "inversely" mean in the phrase "y varies inversely with x"?

opposite, right?

  • skullpatrol
In this context it means y = k/x.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, but what does k stand for?
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
Where the k is the constant of the inverse variation equation.

okay, so then what?

Look for what the question is asking for...

y varies inversely with x. Find the constant of the inverse variation equation if x = 3.2 when y = 16.
skullpatrol
  • skullpatrol
We know the equation has the form y = k/x and we are given: "if x = 3.2 when y =16" Do you have enough info to calculate k?
