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

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.
