Question

# In an inverse variation, x = 6 and y = . What is the equation that represents the inverse variation?

- y = x
- y =
- y = -
- y = x

Hint:

### Mathematical relationship between two variables which can be expressed by an equation in which the product of two variables is equal to a constant.

## The correct answer is: y =

### Here, we are given that in an inverse variation, x = 6 and y = 1/2.

We have to find the relation between x and y.

We have, y =

=> = k/6

=> k = 3.

Equation: y = .

Hence, the correct option is B.

We can also take the relation as xy = k instead of y = k/x, where k is a constant.
