Suppose \(p\) and \(q\) are inversely proportional. If \(p = 25 \) when \(q = 6\), find the value of \(p\) when \(q = 15\).

If p and q are inversely proportional this means that p = k/q, where k is a constant.

 

From the information given, we have: 25 = k/6, so k = 25*6

 

When q = 15, we have p = 25*6/15 or p = 10
