# When two quantities x and y are in inverse proportion, then x/y is a constant. Is the following statement true or false

**Solution:**

When x and y are in inverse proportion then we write

x ∝ 1/y

Which implies

xy = k

Where k is a positive constant

Hence the statement that x/y is a constant is __False__

**✦ Try This: **When two quantities x and y are in direct proportion, then x/y is a constant.

When x and y are in direct proportion then we write

x ∝ y

Which implies

x/y = k

Where k is a positive constant

Hence the statement that x/y is a constant is __True__
