Question 1.

In the following table find out x and y vary directly or inversely?

Solution:

From the table itself we observe that as x increases y decreases.

∴ x and y are inversely proportional

∴ xy = 8 × 32 = 16 × 16 = 32 × 8 = 256 × 1 = 256

Question 2.

If x and y vary inversely as each other and x = 10 when y = 6. Find y when x = 15.

Solution:

Since x and y vary inversely as each other

xy = constant

10 × 6 = 15 xy

60 = 15y

Question 3.

If x and y vary inversely and if y = 35 find x when constant of variation is 7.

Solution:

Given x andy are inversely proportional

xy = constant

when y = 35 and constant = 7 ; x × 35 = 7
