Suppose p varies directly as the cube of x, and inversely with y. If p=5/8 when x=4 and y=10, find p when x=2 and y=16 How do you set up the steps?

When P varies directly with x, it means, for some constant k. If P varies directly with the cube of x then, When P varies inversely with y it means, Now if you use the initial conditions provided you should be able to solve for the constants
