Off course we can tell you the difference between inverse and direct proportions in a very easy way. Just consider 2 things which are related to each other. And if one thing is increasing the second thing which is related to that thing is also increasing and similarly if one thing is decreasing and the second thing which is related to the first is also decreasing that will be called the direct proportion. For example if you purchase 5 eggs for 5 dollars and if you keep increasing the number of eggs the cost will be automatically increase so this is the example of direct proportion. I mean there is the direct proportion between the number of eggs and their cost.

And opposite to it if something is increasing while the other thing that is related to it is decreasing it will be called inverse proportion. For example if you're driving a car and the car speed is increasing while the distance is decreasing to your destination. That proportion will be called the inverse proportion. So this is difference between direct proportion and inverse proportions.
