    are you familiar with the graph: \[y=\frac{1}{x}\]

    Awesome, cause that's what you're looking at here basically. So if you rearrange it, you can write the same exact equation for that graph as \(yx=1\) This tells you what you need to look for in the relation \(PV=nRT\) the two quantities represented by that graph will end up being on the same side of this equation.

    Temperature and pressure are not on the same side of the ideal gas equation

    If temperature increases pressure should also increase so it should have a positive slope not negative

    If pressure is increased volume would decrease so yes that is your answer

    Yeah, so you can kinda just say that \(nRT=1\) or something, it won't really change the relationship between P and V, \[P=\frac{nRT}{V}\] Or you can put it back in there to see: \[P=\frac{1}{V}\]
