asymptote |
An is a straight line to which, as the distance from the origin gets larger, a curve gets closer and closer but never intersects. The line is often shown with a dashed or dotted line.asymptote |

hyperbola |
A is a curve with two distinct and similar branches. Geometrically, the curve's two branches are formed by cutting a right circular cone with a plane. Algebraically, hyperbola come from equations of the form .hyperbolas |

Inverse Variation |
Inverse variation is a relationship between two variables in which the product of the two variables is equal to a constant. As one variable increases the second variable decreases proportionally. |

Constant of Proportionality |
The constant of proportionality, commonly represented as is the constant ratio of two proportional quantities such as and . |

Direct Variation |
When the dependent variable grows large or small as the independent variable does. |

Joint Variation |
Variables exhibit joint variation if one variable varies directly as the product of two or more other variables. |
