No, y does not vary directly with x.

Work Step by Step

The reason why we concluded that y does not directly vary with x is because we can see that as x increases, the value of y decreases. In order for y to vary directly with x, both variables have to increase and decrease in unison which does not happen here so we can assert that y does not vary directly with x but rather, varies inversely with x.
