What are some practical examples of inverse relationships?
Supply and demand and time versus distance travelled are common examples of inverse relationships in practice. Far from being purely theoretical, inverse relationships exist in most systems that affect our day to day lives. For example, there is a well-described inverse relationship between unemployment and inflation.
Parameters, such as time and distance, are inversely related when the value of one parameter increases against the other’s decreasing value. If someone walks faster, the time it takes to reach the destination is shortened.
