# If y varies inversely with x and k = 0.32, what is x when y = 10?

Jun 3, 2015

Inverse variation is represented as:
$y = \frac{k}{x}$

$y = 10 \mathmr{and} k = 0.32$
Substituting these in the variation to find color(red)(x

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

$\textcolor{red}{x} = \frac{0.32}{10}$

 color(red)(x= 0.032
