To determine the constant of proportionality in an inverse proportion, you can use the formula y = k/x, where k represents the constant of proportionality. To find the value of k, substitute the given values of y and x into the equation and solve for k. In this case, when y = 6 and x = 4, the equation becomes 6 = k/4. By cross-multiplying and solving for k, we find that k = 24. Therefore, the constant of proportionality is 24.
