## FAQs on Important Questions for CBSE Class 8 Maths Chapter 11 - Direct and Inverse Proportions

**1. What is the direct proportion?**

A mathematical comparison between two numbers in which the ratio of the two numbers equals a fixed value is known as direct proportion. When two ratios are equal, they are in proportion, according to the proportion definition. When two quantities are split in a direct proportion, the ratio between them remains the same. (They divide into equal portions). Daily hours are an example of a directly proportional relationship. We can find other examples of direct proportion in our day to day life.

**3. What do you mean by inverse proportion?**

When one quantity rises, the other decreases in an indirect (or inverse) proportion. The product of the matching amounts remains the same in an inverse proportion. When one number grows while the other drops, the inverse proportion occurs. Adding additional workers to a task, for example, might speed up completion. That means that they're inversely proportional to each other. Practice all the problems related to inverse proportion to learn each topic concerned with inverse proportions. Important questions are easily available on Vedantu.

**4. Is direct proportion always linear?**

A linear connection that is exactly proportionate or directly proportional is a specific form of a linear relationship. When one variable equals 0, the second variable has the same value as the first. On a graph, the "origin" would be represented by a straight line. The graph of a proportionate connection is always a straight line since the two variables always change by the same multiple and one cannot observe any bends, curves or open spots.

**5. How do I find out proportionality?**

You might write several ratios as fractions, decrease them and then compare them to determine if they are proportionate. Proportional ratios exist when the reduced fractions are all the same. This is one of the most efficient ways to find out the proportionality of comparatively simpler quantities. Practice all of the direct proportion problems to become proficient in each concept of direct proportions.
