$\frac{1}{4}$

#### Explanation:

$y \text{ }$ varies inversely with $\text{ "x" }$is written as:

$y \text{ "alpha" } \frac{1}{x}$

to write as an equation we put a constant term in :

$y = \frac{k}{x}$

we are given$\text{ } k = 1.4$

so$\text{ } y = \frac{1.4}{x}$

to find $\text{ "y " }$ when $\text{ } x = 5.6$

$y = \frac{1.4}{5.6} = \frac{1}{4}$
