For a rectangular garden with a fixed area, the length of the garden varies inversely with the width. Which equation represents this situation for an area of 36 square units?
For a rectangular garden with a fixed area, the length of the garden varies inversely with the width. Which equation represents this situation for an area of 36 square units?
$\displaystyle L=\frac{k}{W}$ means the Length varies inversely with the Width and k is called the constant of proportionality.
If $\displaystyle LW=k$, then $\displaystyle LW=36.$ with 36 being your constant of proportionality.
