## Challenge:

If t and \(\sqrt{w}\) are inversely proportional when t = 2 and w=9, what is the value of t when w =2?

### The Absolute Best Book** to ****challenge your Smart Student!**

The correct answer is\(3\sqrt{2}\).

t and \(\sqrt{w} \) are inversely proportional when t = 2 and w=9,

Then, \(t × \sqrt{w} = 2 × \sqrt{9} = 2 × 3 = 6\)

w =2, then,

\(t × \sqrt{w} = 6 → t × \sqrt{2} = 6 → t = \frac{6}{\sqrt{2}} × \frac{\sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{2}} = \frac{6\sqrt{2}}{2} = 3\sqrt{2}\)
