By the end of this learning packet, you will understand how to:
-Identify if an equation represents a direct variation or an inverse variation
-Given two values and the knowledge that they vary directly (or inversely), write an equation
Direct and inverse variations are really just fancy ways of describing common forms of equations. By the end of this packet, you will know how to recognize these forms and write your own.
Check out this great website for more example problems to try on your own. They provide step-by-step answers if you need a hint or two:
Direct and inverse variation are really just fancy ways of describing certain types of equations that we often see in real world problems. Check out the slideshow to find out what they look like and how to use them to solve problems.
