# DpInverse

@Immutable inline class DpInverse : Comparable<DpInverse>

kotlin.Any | |

↳ | androidx.ui.unit.DpInverse |

Holds a unit of an inverse dimensions, such as `1.dp / (2.value * 3.dp)`

. DpSquared,
DpCubed, and DpInverse are used primarily for Dp calculations to
ensure resulting units are as expected. Many times, Dp calculations use scalars to
determine the final dimension during calculation:
val width = oldWidth * stretchAmount
Other times, it is useful to do intermediate calculations with Dimensions directly:
val width = oldWidth * newTotalWidth / oldTotalWidth
