Expert Solution

## Answer to Problem 18E

The equation of the constant proportional is k=15

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

z is inversely proportional to t

t=3,z=5

Concept used:

If the quantities x and y are related by an equation

y=kx

For some constant k0

That is y varies inversely as x or y is inversely proportional to x

The constant k is called constant proportionality

Calculation:

If the quantities z and t are related by an equation

zα1t

z=kt......................(1)

For some constant k0

That is z varies inversely t or z is inversely proportional to t

The constant k is called constant proportionality

If t=3,z=5

From equation (1)

z=kt5=k3k=15
