# How do you write an inverse variation equations given x = 12 when y = 3.?

The inverse variation equation can be written as y = k/x, where k is the constant of variation. To find the value of k, substitute the given values of x and y into the equation and solve for k. In this case, when x = 12 and y = 3, the equation becomes 3 = k/12. Multiply both sides of the equation by 12 to isolate k, giving k = 36. Therefore, the inverse variation equation is y = 36/x.
