**Inverse Proportion X 1 2 4 8 y 80 40 20 10 Inverse Proportion**

Inverse Proportion is when one quantity increases and the other decreases. The two quantities are said to be INVERSELY Proportional or (INDIRECTLY Proportional) to each other. Example : Fill in the following table given x and y are inversely proportional. y x X 1 2 4 8 y 80 40 20 10

**More people Less people Number of people 4 2 1 Time in days. 2 4 8**

It takes one person 8 days to complete a job. How many days will it take 2 people? 4 people? Why do you know this? More people Less people Number of people 4 2 1 Time in days. 2 4 8 More Time Less Time

3
**3 8 4 24 ÷ 4 = 6 hours Men Hours y 1 3 x 8 = 24 hours x**

Example : If it takes 3 men 8 hours to build a wall. How long will it take 4 men. (Less time !!) Men Hours 3 8 y x 1 3 x 8 = 24 hours 4 24 ÷ 4 = 6 hours

4
**Example : It takes 10 men 12 months to build a house.**

How long should it take 15 men. Men Months y x 10 12 1 12 x 10 = 120 15 120 ÷ 15 = 8 months

5
**Example : At 8 m/s a journey takes 32 minutes.**

How long should it take at 10 m/s. Speed Time 8 32 mins y x 1 32 x 8 = 256 mins 10 256 ÷ 10 = 25.6 mins
