i don't think s i can explain but i know the equation for inverse prp \[\huge\rm y=\frac{ k }{ x }\]haha :P

What is the K?
Zale101
  • Zale101
K is constant

  • Nnesha
^what she said :) constant of variation

  • Zale101
In this equation, we know that if y increases, x decreases and vice versa

The time it takes to erect a bonfire is inversely proportional to the number of students doing the work. If it takes 20 students 1.5 hours to do the job, how long will it take 35 students to do the job, to the nearest minute?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
time = y students= x

THis is a super confusing problem
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
okay equation for inverse variation is y =k/x <--(y inversely proportional to x) read the question **time it takes to erect a bonfire is inversely proportional to the number of students** time inversely proportional to number of students let time = t students = S so equation would be \[\huge\rm t =\frac{ k }{ s }\]
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
when t =1.5 s=20 so plug in t and s value solve for k (constant of variation)

ohhhh okay so 30
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
that's k you need y value when =35 so now use the same equation solve for y
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
\[\rm y=\frac{ 30 }{ 35 }\]

6/7 x 60 = 360/7 = 51.43 minutes

***to the nearest minute*** so 60 sec in a mint multiply that by 60
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 51 minutes?
