The word is actually reciprocal. A number multiplied by it's reciprocal will always equal 1.

If you have 46, and multiplied it by 1/46, you will get 1. They are both reciprocals of each other as well. If you multiplied 1/46 by 46, you'd get 1 again.

If you have a number x, the reciprocal will always be 1/x.
