If p is inversely proportional to the square of q, and p is 2 when q is 4, determine p when q is equal to 2.
We set up the variation equation with a constant k such that:
p = k/q^2 [I](inversely proportional means we divide)
[/I]
When q is 4 and p is 2, we have:
2 = k/4^2
2 = k/16
Cross multiply:
k = 2 * 16
k = 32
Now, the problem asks for p when q = 2:
p = 32/2^2
p = 32/4
p = [B]8

m is inversely proportional to the square of p-1 when p=4 and m=5. find m when p=6
Inversely proportional means there is a constant k such that:
