# If x is inversely proportional to y, and x = 60 when y = 0.5, how do you find x when y = 12?

To find x when y = 12, we can use the inverse proportionality relationship between x and y.

First, we can set up the equation for inverse proportionality: x * y = k, where k is a constant.

Next, we can substitute the given values into the equation: 60 * 0.5 = k.

Simplifying this equation, we find that k = 30.

Now, we can use the value of k to find x when y = 12: x * 12 = 30.

Dividing both sides of the equation by 12, we get x = 2.5.

Therefore, when y = 12, x is equal to 2.5.
