The inverse variation equation can be written as y = k/x, where k is a constant. 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 = -2 and y = -6, the equation becomes -6 = k/(-2). Solving for k, we get k = -12. Therefore, the inverse variation equation is y = -12/x.

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.
