# Assume y varies inversely as x, if y=12 when x=3, how do you find x when y=6?

To find x when y=6, we can use the inverse variation formula: y = k/x.

First, we need to find the constant of variation (k). We can do this by substituting the given values into the formula: 12 = k/3.

Solving for k, we multiply both sides by 3: k = 36.

Now that we have the value of k, we can find x when y=6 by substituting the values into the formula: 6 = 36/x.

To solve for x, we can cross-multiply: 6x = 36.

Dividing both sides by 6, we find that x = 6.

Therefore, when y=6, x=6.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
