# If x and y are inversely proportional then _____ = k where k is positive constant

**Solution:**

If x and y are inversely proportional then we can write:

x ∝ 1/y

Which implies x = k/y

xy = k

Where k is a positive constant

**✦ Try This: **If x and y are directly proportional then _____ = k where k is positive constant.

x ∝ y

Which implies

x/y = k

Where k is a positive constant
