in this video, we're explaining the difference between inverse and direct and variance. So indirect variants, which is this one we have that the value of X is simply a constant multiplied by the value. Why so whenever X changes, why would be changing within, like a factor of that constant, however, an inverse variation which the equation on the right, when X and y change acts might be increasing and wine list be decreasing in the opposite direction to account for this constant factor on the right clutter. Free, direct indirect variance is the way that the two variables account for each other when the constant is changing, uh, or if each variable itself is changing.
