Inversely Proportional

A relationship between two variables in which the product is a constant. When one variable increases the other decreases in proportion so that the product is unchanged.

If b is inversely proportional to a, the equation is of the form b = k/a (where k is a constant).

Equation: y = 60/x

y is inversely proportional to x.

Doubling x causes y to halve. The product of x and y is always 60.
