Direct variation is the ratio of two variable is constant. Inverse variation is when the product of two variable is constant. For example, direct variation is y = kx and indirect variation would be y = k/x .

If x varies directly as y, then

x= ky, where k is any constant

If x varies inversely as y, then

x = k/y, where k is any constant

How do you find if a table is direct variation or inverse variation?

Suppose the two variables are denoted by X and Y. If Y is a constant multiple of X, that is Y = c*X, then the variation is direct. If the value of X*Y is a constant, that is Y = c/X, then the variation in inverse.


How do you tell an inverse variation from a direct variation?
