6=xy does this show direct variation Explain your reasoning. ANSWER THIS PLZ


  1. Answer:

    No. It is an inverse variation.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    6= xy

    Making y the subject of formula:

    y =  \frac{6}{x}

    For a direct variation, the equation would be in the form of y=kx, where k is a constant.

    However, the equation above is in the form of y =  \frac{k}{x} .

    Thus, 6=xy does not show direct variation.
