Question

Meaning of directly proportional and inversely proportional through example


Solution

Inversely proportional

Inversely proportional is when one value increases as the other value decreases. A simple example of inversely proportional quantities is the lengths and widths of rectangles with the same area. As the length of one side doubles, the width has to be halved for the area to stay the same.


Directly proportional  

Directly proportional is when one value increases as the other value also increases.
A simple example of two things that are in the same proportion is the amount of apples you might buy and the amount you pay for them
