 (inversamente) proporcional Explanation:Hola: "La amortización de la cuenta (de gastos) se reducía al tiempo que la calidad aumentaba. Esta reducción podría tener una relación casi inversamente proporcional al incremento total de la calidad". Ae "punto por punto" too, but one goes up and the other down. Dictionary below shows example for "proporcional": "el aumento de los beneficios es proporcional a la reducción de los gastos generales". Adding "inversely" goes more down to the punto...What'd'yer reckon? Good luck :-)
