In direct variation, when a given quantity (x) is changed in some ratio then the other quantity(y) is also changed in the same ratio. Then x/ y = constant In Indirect variation, when a given quantity (x) is changed in some ratio then the other quantity(y) is do not changed in the same ratio. Then xy = constant It can be stated that if two quantities vary inversely, their product is a constant 1. Choose the correct answer
