### Inverse Proportional Calculator

## How to Use Inversely Proportional Calculator?

Follow the given steps to use the inverse variation calculator:

**Step 1:**Enter the value for one of the variables and the proportionality constant.**Step 2:**Click on "**Solve"**to know the other variable.**Step 3:**Click on**"Reset"**to enter the new set of values.

The calculator shows the value of the other variable along with step by step solution.

## How to find the Inversely Proportional Value?

When two quantities are related to each other inversely, i.e., when an increase in one quantity brings a decrease in the other and vice versa then they are said to be inversely proportional. Inverse proportion formulas help in establishing a relationship between two inversely proportional quantities.

Let x and y be two quantities.

Then y is said to be inversely proportional to x, and is written mathematically as:

**y ∝ 1/x**

**y = c/x**

Where x and y are the variables and c is the constant of proportionality.

Let us understand more about this with the help of the below-solved examples.

**Solved Examples on Inversely Proportional Calculator**

**Example 1:**

Find the value of y for the value of the variable x = 20 and constant c = 5. Use the inverse variation equation y = c / x.

**Solution:**

The given value of x is 20 and c is 5

y = c / x

= 5 / 20

= 0.25

Therefore the inverse proportion value of x, y = 0.25

**Example 2:**

Find the value of x for the value of the variable y = 300 and constant c = 21. Use the inversely proportional equation x = c / y.

**Solution:**

The given value of y is 300 and c is 21

x = c / y

= 21 / 300

= 0.07

Therefore the inverse proportion value of x, y = 0.07

**Example 3:**

Find the value of y for the value of the variable x = 34 and constant c = 7. Use the indirect variation equation y = c / x.

**Solution:**

The given value of x is 34 and c is 7

y = c / x

= 7 / 34

= 0.21

Therefore the inverse proportion value of x, y = 0.21

Now, try the calculator to find the value of x, when y is inversely proportional to x

- a) Variable y = 4 and Constant c = 60
- b) Variable y = 5 and Constant c = 30
