Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay this is pretty straight forward. We know that if y varies INVERSELY as x, then \[y=1/x\] as that is the general form of inverse variation. So which one of the solutions is in that form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\rm y=\frac{ 1 }{ x}k~~or~~ y=\frac{ k }{ x}\]where k is constant of variation
