    Re: Wisdom is proportional to age.

    Hello,
    I have a question regarding the word "proportional".

    Does it mean directly proportional or it means inversely proportional as well ?

    Cheers

    Can I also say like this?

    Wisdom has a direct proportion to age.

    Memory has a inverse proportion to age.
