Inversely is only an adverbial term for the word inverse which conveys the idea of something that is opposite in position or amount of something else. The following sentence can help you in understanding the concept quite well: The wealth of a person is inversely proportional to that of the happiness in his life. The sentence here says that the wealthier a person is the less happiness he will have.

The word is often heard in mathematical terms and you can find it in use when some number is increasing when something else decreases. There is another word also that is often heard along with the abovementioned word and that is 'directly'. It is just opposite of inversely and often both the terms come together in a mathematical topic.
