# Question #afc60

#### Explanation:

When a question tells you that two different numbers vary inversely, you're bound to use the following relationship:

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

Plugging in for y and x, you get the following value for k:

$1 , 485 = \frac{k}{0.2}$, $k = 297$

Using the same relationship once more, we can find y when $x = 27$:

$y = \frac{297}{27} = 11$

You can use this principle to find any other inverse relationships for future problems.
