Direct variation is the ratio of two variable is constant. Inverse variation is when the product of two variable is constant. For example, direct variation is y = kx and indirect variation would be y = k/x .

If a variable X is in inverse variation with a variable Y, then it is in direct variation with the variable (1/Y).

im not say that defferent.my question is inverse variation as a proportion.pls answerbecause i dont know the answer

No, this is an inverse variation.

Direct

Inverse variation does not pass through the origin, however direct variation always passes through the origin.

xy=k

Suppose the two variables are denoted by X and Y. If Y is a constant multiple of X, that is Y = c*X, then the variation is direct. If the value of X*Y is a constant, that is Y = c/X, then the variation in inverse.

direct varation is when both x and y rise and decrease by the same number. inverse is when x or y decreases, the other one increases by the same number

No. This is not true. It is false. The equation is an example of direct variation.

direct means it stays the same while inverse means it will change.
