does the data in the table represent a direct variation or an inverse variation?

x 2 4 8 12
y 4 2 1 2/3

Choices:

inverse variation; xy = 8
direct variation; y = 8x
inverse variation;y/x = 8
*direct variation; y = 8/x

Thank You.

heck, just check each choice

Looks like xy=8 to me
inverse variation

y=8/x is correct, but it's an inverse variation
