Directly proportional. Greater speed - greater distance.

Generally, if y increases as x increases, this is a hint that the quantity is directly proportional, and if y decreases as x increases, the relation might be inversely proportional. However, this is not always the case. x and y are directly proportional if y = kx, where k is a constant. x and y are inversely proportional if y = k/x, k is constant. This is the best way to tell whether the quantities are directly or inversely proportional.

Two variables, X and Y are said to be in inversely proportional is X*Y - k where k is some non-zero constant. X and Y are said to be directly proportional if X = c*Y where c is some constant.

Example of inverse proportion is: Density = Mass/Volume Because the formula represents that the density is directly proportional to the mass while density is inversely proportional to volume. Remember that inversely proportional means that if variable A increases, the variable B decreases, and if variable B increases, the variable A decreases.
