# If x varies inversely with y and x = 6 when y = 10, how do you find y when x = 8?

To find y when x = 8, we can use the inverse variation formula: x1 * y1 = x2 * y2.

Given that x varies inversely with y, we have x1 = 6, y1 = 10, and x2 = 8.

Plugging these values into the formula, we can solve for y2:

6 * 10 = 8 * y2

60 = 8 * y2

Dividing both sides by 8:

y2 = 60 / 8

y2 = 7.5

Therefore, when x = 8, y is equal to 7.5.

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.
