If two things are inversely proportional, you can bet that you'll need to use the formula for inverse variation to solve! In this word problem, you'll see how to use the formula for inverse variation to find the constant of inverse variation and then solve for your answer.
You can't do algebra without working with variables, but variables can be confusing. If you've ever wondered what variables are, then this tutorial is for you!
Ever heard of two things being inversely proportional? Well, a good example is speed and time. The bigger your speed, the less time it takes to get to where you are going. So when one variable is big, the other is small, and that's the idea of inverse proportionality. But you can express inverse proportionality using equations, and that's an important thing to do in algebra. See how to do that in the tutorial!
Constants are parts of algebraic expressions that don't change. Check out this tutorial to see exactly what a constant looks like and why it doesn't change.
Solving an equation for a variable? Perform the order of operations in reverse! Check it out in this tutorial.
