When a number is a fraction, the reciprocal will always be greater than the original number. When the original number is a whole number, the reciprocal will be a fraction, which is less than a whole number.

No. The reciprocal of 2/3 is 3/2

Number x Reciprocal = 1 Therefore Reciprocal = 1/Number

put the #1 under the number to make it a fraction. then just switch them around Let's look at an example to help you understand this idea. 5 = 5/1 The reciprocal is just the fraction flipped over. In this case, 1/5 Thus, a whole number can always be shown as a fraction of itself over 1. The inverted fraction is the reciprocal of the whole number.

Multiply by the reciprocal.

Mutiply the whole number by the reciprocal of the fraction.

A reciprocal, perhaps.

Yes. For example, if you have 1/3, the reciprocal would be 3.

To find the reciprocal of a whole number, you must first write it as a fraction. You do this by writing x/1, if the number is 4, it would be 4/1. Then you would find the reciprocal of that fraction. So using the same example, the reciprocal of 4 is 1/4.

no. only one can have a whole number recipical. all the others have a fraction recipical

No. The reciprocal of 2/3 is 3/2.

multiply by the reciprocal of the whole number

It is called the reciprocal of a fraction when the fraction is turned upside down.To find reciprocal of a mixed number, convert the whole number to the fraction and create an improper fraction: 22/4 becomes 10/4 and the reciprocal is 4/10

First take the bottom number times the side number and then add your answer to the top number. Then flip it and that's the reciprocal

If you multiply them, reciprocals always equal one.

There is no name other than a reciprocal whole number.

Dividing a decimal by a whole number is the same as multiplying the decimal by the whole number's reciprocal. Convert that fraction to its decimal equivalent and proceed.

Multiply the fraction by the reciprocal of the whole number. 3/4 divided by 8 = 3/4 times 1/8

Not just every whole number. Every number has a reciprocal, even 0. The reciprocal of 0 is undefined.

for example x belongs to W a/b is a fraction x divided by a/b is = x X b/a means the whole number should multiply with reciprocal ( Multiplicativeinverse) of such fraction we get the solutiion.

Rules for dividing by a fraction are multiply by the reciprocal. The reciprocal of a unit fraction is a whole number. Multiplying by a whole number will make the answer (quotient) larger. ex unit fraction 1/a 7 divided by 1/a = 7 x a/1 = 7a .... a times larger than 7.

not a whole number maby a NEGITIVE

the reciprocal is the fraction or whole number turned into a fraction... flopped! in other words, 3/9 would turn into 9/3 or 3/1 would be turned into 1/3.

Not necessarily.

Yes, if it is a whole number but not if it is a fraction
