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 = 8 and y = 24, the equation becomes 24 = k/8. Solving for k, we get k = 192. Therefore, the inverse variation equation is y = 192/x.
