Does the table represents an inverse variation. If so, write the inverse variation equation, solve for y when x=4.

Amperes (x)   Ohms(y)

310                   .04

124                  .1

62                    .2

15.5                  .8

The values in the table are:

Amperes(x)   Ohms(y)

310               0.04

124               0.1

62                 0.2

15.5              0.8

It is seen that the product of the x-values and the corresponding y values is the same in all cases, 310*0.04 = 124*0.1 = 62*0.2 = 15.5*0.8 = 12.4. This shows that the table represents an inverse variation equation

The inverse variation equation is y = 12.4/x

For x = 4, y = 12.4/4 = 3.1

The corresponding value for x = 4 is y = 3.1
