Answer

$y = \frac{1.5}{x}$ or $xy = 1.5$

Work Step by Step

Our equation for an inverse variation is $y = \frac{k}{x}$ or $xy = k$. We will use the second form of the equation to solve for k. $0.5\times3 = k$ $1.5 = k$ $k = 1.5$ Therefore, our equation for the inverse variation is $y = \frac{1.5}{x}$ or $xy = 1.5$
