Amperes (abbreviated amp) measure the strength of electric current. An ohm is the unit of electrical resistance. In an electric circuit, the current varies inversely as the resistance. If the current is 24 amps when the resistance is 20 ohms, find the inverse variation function and use it to find the resistance in ohms when the current is 40 amps.

Please help and work it out thanks
