Practice the questions given in the worksheet on inverse variation using method of proportion.

We know, in inverse variation if one increases, the other decreases and if one decreases, the other increases.

In inverse variation: \(\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}} = \frac{b_{2}}{b_{1}}\)

or, \(a_{1}\times b_{1} = a_{2}\times b_{2}\).

**For example of inverse variation:**

● More labours at work, less time taken to complete the work.

Less labours at work, more time taken to complete the work.
