    Red face amount

    The amount of money each member of a band earns playing at a
    graduation party varies inversely as the number of members in the band.
    If the band has five members, each member earns $70. Write an
    equation that models the relationship between the number of members
    in a band, n, and the amount each member earns, d.
    Use the equation to calculate the amount each member earns if there
    are four members in the band.

    d = \frac{k}{n} , where k is the constant of proportionality

    sub in the given values and solve for k , then determine d if n = 4
