A whole number. May be positive or negative.

Two quantities are directly proportional when one quantity increases the other increases by the same amount. If y is directly proportional to x, this can be written as y ∝ x or y = kx.

Two quantities are inversely proportional when one quantity increases the other decreases. If y is inversely proportional to x, this can be written as y ∝ 1/x or y= k/x.
