Two quantities a and b are said to be in Inverse proportion if
But the ratio of their respective values must be the same.
If 15 artists can make a statue in 48 hours then how many artists will be required to do the same work in 30 hours?
Let the number of artists required to make a statue in 30 hours be y.
|Number of hours||48||30|
|Number of artists||15||y|
We know that as the no. of artists will increase the time to complete the work will reduce. So, the number of hours and number of artists are in inverse proportion.
So, 24 artists will be required to make the statue in 30 hours.
