### What is the difference direct variation and inverse variation?

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 .

### Is y equals 24 divided by x a direct variation?

No, this is an inverse variation.

### Does the graph of an inverse variation pass through the origin?

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

### How do you find if a table is direct variation or inverse variation?

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.

### How do you tell an inverse variation from a direct variation?

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
