### Example Question #25 : How To Find Inverse Variation

The cost to go on a field trip varies inversely with the number of people attending the trip. If it costs $10 to go on the trip when 3 people are attending, how much would it cost if 15 people are attending?

**Possible Answers:**

$8

$50

$5

$2

**Correct answer:**

$2

Where is the cost and is the number of people attending.

We first solve for by plugging in and .

We then evaluate when

Therefore the cost is

$2
