Inverse Proportion: Two quantities x and y are said to be in inverse proportion if Two quantities may change in such a manner that if one quantity increases, the other quantity decreases, and vice versa.
Definition
Inverse Proportion:

Two quantities x and y are said to be in inverse proportion if Two quantities may change in such a manner that if one quantity increases, the other quantity decreases, and vice versa.

For example,
1) As the number of workers increases, the time taken to finish the job decreases.
2) If we increase the speed, the time taken to cover a given distance decreases.  To understand this, let us look into the following situation.
Zaheeda can go to her school in four different ways. She can walk, run, cycle, or go by car. As Zaheeda doubles her speed by running, time reduces to half. As she increases her speed to three times by cycling, time decreases to one third. Similarly, as she increases her speed to 15 times, time decreases to onefifteenth. (Or, in other words, the ratio by which time decreases is inverse of the ratio by which the corresponding speed increases).
Relation for Inverse Proportion:
Two quantities x and y are said to be in inverse proportion if an increase in x causes a proportional decrease in y (and viceversa) in such a manner that the product of their corresponding values remains constant. That is, if xy = k, then x and y are said to vary inversely. In this case if y_{1}, y_{2} are the values of y corresponding to the values x_{1}, x_{2} of x respectively then x_{1}y_{1} = x_{2}y_{2} or `x_1/x_2 = y_2/y_1`.
Example
6 pipes are required to fill a tank in 1 hour 20 minutes. How long will it take if only 5 pipes of the same type are used?
Number of pipes  6  5 
Time (in minutes)  80  x 
Example
Number of hours  48  30 
Number of workers  15  y
