Your school subject is NOT high school.
You can either find the answer in your book or you can use this answer from a notoriously unreliable source.

This is a better source.

I like to think of inverse relationships like this
P=constant/V we say P and V are inverese.
But watch. multiply both sides by V
P*V=constant. Now it is easy to see if P goes up, V has to go down so their product is always the same constant.
