if y is inversely proportional to x and y = 41 when x = 10, what is the value of y when x =7?
You won’t see inverse proportionality on the current SAT, but in inverse proportions the product of the two numbers remains constant: . In this case, if when , then the product is 410: . Now you just need to solve:
(This would work out much cleaner if were equal to 42 in the beginning…)
