Breaking Weight 24/16/13/11/9

Explain how your equation shows that breaking weight decreases as length increases. Is this pattern reasonable for this situation? Explain.

I used inverse variation equation and found that the equation would be y=96/x with the given data. How do I explain that and is the pattern resonable?

**bobpursley**, Sunday, September 30, 2012 at 9:12pmIt is reasonable, however, itis not an exact fit.

If according to you y=96/x, then xy=96

Now look at your table. I will take the products of lenght*breaking weight

48,96,104,99,90

So it is not an exact fit.
