If after 3 years in the industry the group needs 50 new songs, how many songs will you need after 5 years?

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer: Β a) [tex]3\times50=5 \times x[/tex]b) 30Step-by-step explanation:Given: The number of new songs that a rock group needs to stay at the top each year is inversely proportional to the year and that the group has been in the industry.Let x be the number of songs will be needed after 5 years.Now the inverse variation equation for the given question will be:-[tex]3\times50=5 \times x\\\\\Rightarrow x=\dfrac{3\times50}{5}\\\\\Rightarrow\ x=30[/tex]Hence , the number songs will be needed after 5 years = 30
