1 Lesson 12.1 Inverse Variation pg. 642 Objectives: To graph inverse variation. To solve problems involving inverse variation.

2 Inverse Variation y varies inversely as x if there is some nonzero constant k such that xy = k

3 Inverse Variation Problems To solve some inverse variation problems, there are two steps: (1) First find the value of k (2) Use the value of k to find a specific value of x or y

4 Graphing Inverse Variation To graph inverse variation choose values for x and y whose product is k

5 Ex. 1: Graphing inverse variation 1)Graph an inverse variation in which y varies inversely as x, and y=1 when x=4

6 Graph an inverse variation in which y varies inversely as x, and y=-6 when x=-2 y x

7 Product Rule for inverse variation The product rule x 1 y 1 = x 2 y 2 can be used to solve inverse variation problems.

8 Ex. 2: Write and inverse variation equation that relates x and y. Assume that y varies inversely as x. Then solve. 1. If y varies inversely as x and y = 5 when x =12, find x when y = 15

9 2. If y varies inversely as x and y = 8 when x =6, find y when x = 4
