In order for both sides of the equation to remain equal, n would have to go up too. That means they vary directly with one another. What happens when T increases? Since T is on the bottom of the fraction, it would decrease the right side of the equation, so n would have to decrease to keep both sides equal. This is an inverse relationship. The only one that makes sense is answer d. Answer b might seem correct at first, but remember that R is a constant, and cannot vary!...
