The equation for the inverse variation is y = k/x, where k is the constant of variation. To find the value of k, substitute the given values of y and x into the equation and solve for k. In this case, when y = 8 and x = 1/2, the equation becomes 8 = k/(1/2). Simplifying, we get 8 = 2k. Solving for k, we find k = 4. Therefore, the equation for the inverse variation is y = 4/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.
