**Inverse, Joint, and Combined Variation**

Objective: To find the constant of variation for many types of problems and to solve real world problems.

7
Inverse Variation Two variables, x and y, have an inverse-variation relationship if there is a nonzero number k such that xy = k, y = k/x. The constant of variation is k.

Try This The variable y varies inversely as x, and y = 120 when x = Find the constant of variation and write an equation for the relationship. Then, find y when x is 1.5, 4.5, 8, 12.5, and 14.

14
Joint Variation If y = kxz, then y varies jointly as x and z, and the constant of variation is k.

Squared Variation If , where k is a nonzero constant, then y varies directly as the square of x. Many geometric relationships involve this type of variation, as show in the next example.
