# Inversely Proportional Calculator

An 'Inversely Proportional Calculator' is an online tool that finds the inversely proportionate value for the given value of one variable and constant.

## What is an Inversely Proportional Calculator?

Cuemath's 'Inversely Proportional Calculator' helps you to find the inversely proportionate value for the given value of one variable and constant within a few seconds.

## How to Use Inversely Proportional Calculator?

Follow the given steps to use the calculator:

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

## How to find the Inversely Proportional?

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, Constant value between them.

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

**Solved Example: **

Find the value of y for the value of the variable x = 20 and constant c = 5

**Solution:**

The given value of x is 20 and c is 5

y ∝ 1 / x

= (constant, c) / x

= 5 / 20

= 0.25

Therefore the inverse proportion value of x, y = 0.25.

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
