Assuming the question is about the multiplicative inverse, the answer is, -1. It is its own multiplicative inverse.

it means reciprocal, the number that multiplies by the original number to get a product of 1. The multiplicative inverse is always 1/x; x=5, then the multiplicative inverse is 1/5. If x=1/2 or .5, the multiplicative inverse is 1/.5, which is also 2.

The multiplicative inverse is also known as the reciprocal. The multiplicative inverse of a number "x" can be expressed as 1/x. In the case of a fraction, exchange numerator and denominator to get the multiplicative inverse.

The multiplicative inverse property is a property such that: a(1/a) = 1 where a is nonzero value. If a is a nonzero value, then the multiplicative inverse of a is 1/a.

Multiplicative Inverse of a NumberReciprocal The reciprocal of x is . In other words, a reciprocal is a fraction flipped upside down. Multiplicative inverse means the same thing as reciprocal.

1/10 is the multiplicative inverse of 10

The multiplicative inverse of -7- is 7/1 (seven over 1).

2 is the multiplicative inverse of 1/2 Therefore 2*1/2 = 1

The multiplicative inverse of a number is its reciprocal, meaning the multiplicative inverse of the rational number a/b is b/a. In the specialized case for integers, the multiplicative inverse of n is 1/n. This is due to the fact that a/b * b/a = 1 and n * 1/n = 1, which is the definition of a multiplicative inverse. More succinctly, to find the multiplicative inverse you "flip" the fraction or integer around to its reciprocal. This is the number that when multiplied with the original number results in a product of 1.
