## Algebra and Trigonometry 10th Edition

$y$ varies inversely as $x$
- First: as $x$ increases, $y$ decreases. - Second: when $x$ goes from 1 to 2 (2 is the double of 1), $y$ goes from 4 to 2 (2 is half of 4). When $x$ goes from 2 to 4 (4 is the double of 2), $y$ goes from 2 to 1 (1 is half of 2) We conclude that $y$ varies inversely as $x$
