# How do you write an inverse variation equations given y=8 when x=1.55?

Mar 16, 2016

Inverse variation equations are of the form $y = \frac{C}{x}$ where $C$ is a constant.

#### Explanation:

You can re-write this into $x \times y = C$

Then in this case $C = 8 \times 1.55 = 12.4$

And then re-write it back to:

$y = \frac{C}{x} = \frac{12.4}{x}$
