a) Inversely Proportional

b) k = 52.5

c) 15 trucks

#### Explanation:

Firstly, we know that the number of trucks necessary is **inversely proportional** to the payload that each can carry (i.e. if one truck can carry more, you need fewer trucks).

So the relationship is:

with some constant

Hence the full equation is:

Finally, if each truck can carry 3.5 tons, **15 trucks**.
