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 inverse operation of addition is subtraction. The inverse multiplication by a number other than 0 is division. Multiplication by 0 does not have an inverse operation.


Multiplying a number by its inverse equals a * (1/a) = 1. The a cancels out.


The multiplicative inverse of a number is : 1/number i.e., one divided by the number. This doesn't apply to zero. Zero has no multiplicative inverse.


inverse property of multiplication


Division by a number is the inverse operation to multiplication by the number (and vice versa).


No, the inverse property of multiplication results in an answer of 1 when inverses are multiplied together. The reciprocal of a number represents the inverse of a number. When a number or term is multiplied by its reciprocal, the result is one. 4 x 1/4 = 1 a x 1/a = 1 5 and 1/5 illustrates the inverse property of multiplication.


Does the pseudo complex number 3+t have multiplication inverse


Division is the inverse operation to multiplication (except by 0). Multiplication by a number is equivalent to division by its reciprocal.


Division is the inverse operation to multiplication. Division by a number (other than zero) is the same as multiplication by its reciprocal.


the inverse of addition is subtraction and the inverse of multiplication is division. Of course, multiplication is just repeated addition so division is just repeated subtraction!


Addition is the inverse of Subtraction. Division is the inverse of Multiplication. and then visa-versa. :-) Addition is the inverse of Subtraction. Division is the inverse of Multiplication. and then visa-versa. :-) the Answer is subtraction


The inverse of multiplication is division.


Because multiplication and division are inverse operations. And the reciprocal of a number is its multiplicative inverse.


They are inverse because they are the opposites.


The inverse of multiplication is division. * * * * * The inverse of the operation of multiplication is division, as stated in the above answer, but another name for the multiplicative inverse is a reciprocal.


It is because division by a non-zero number is the inverse operation of multiplication of multiplication.


The multiplicative inverse of any number, call it x, is 1/x. In this case, -1/4.


Always, unless the original number is zero. This does not have an inverse.


When a number is added to its additive inverse, the result is always 0.


Multiplication is the inverse operation to division.


Operations that undo each other are called inverse operations. Division is the inverse of multiplication as it undoes the multiplication. eg 3 × 7 = 21; 21 ÷ 7 = 3. Note that there is NO inverse for multiplying by 0.



The additive inverse is the inverse under addition; the multiplicative inverse is the inverse under multiplication. For example, the additive inverse of any real or complex number is its negative: the inverse of 3 is -3 and vice versa. The multiplicative inverse of a number other than 0 (which has no such inverse) is its reciprocal: the inverse of 2 is 1/2, and vice versa. Adding a number and its additive inverse gives the additive identity, 0. Multiplying a number by its multiplicative inverse gives the multiplicative identity, 1.


An inverse in mathematics is like saying "opposite" in everyday language. Therefore, the opposite of multiplication is division.


Multiplication is the inverse operation of division.
