Q:
# suppose g(m) varies inversely with M and g(m)=3.5 when m=10. what is the value of M when g(m)=5?

Accepted Solution

A:

In an inverse variation, the function takes the form xy=k

where k is a constant.

Given g(10)=3.5, we find k=xy=3.5*10=35.

This means the function is

m*g(m)=35

When g(m)=5, then m=35/5=7.

where k is a constant.

Given g(10)=3.5, we find k=xy=3.5*10=35.

This means the function is

m*g(m)=35

When g(m)=5, then m=35/5=7.
