# What is an example of multiplicative inverse?

A multiplicative inverse is the same as a reciprocal. The multiplicative inverse of x is 1/x. So, the multiplicative inverse of 4 is 1/4; or 7 is 1/7 and of 0.2 is 1/0.2 = 5.

No. A "multiplicative" is an adjective, not a noun. For example a multiplicative inverse, or a multiplicative relationship, or multiplicative model. It is not a number and cannot be divided.

Swap the numerator and denominator. For example, the multiplicative inverse of 5/7 is 7/5

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

Divide 1 by the number. The multiplicative inverse of 7 is 1/7, for example.

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

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.

Multiply 1⁄4 by 4. The multiplicative inverse of 1⁄4 is 4.

The multiplicative inverse, or reciprocal, of a number "x", is "1/x". For example, the multiplicative inverse of 5 is 1/5. For a fraction, just exchange numerator and denominator. For example, the multiplicative inverse of 2/5 is 5/2.
