Flip is the technical term for a reciprocal. (The reciprocal of 3/4 is 4/3)
The reciprocal is the "multiplicative inverse". This means 1 divided by the number. The reciprocal of 2 is 1/2, the reciprocal of 5 is 1/5, etc.
What does reciprocal mean in fractions
Either it is an expression yelled by a teacher when something goes wrong, or it is an alternative term for "to find the reciprocal of". For example, the reciprocal of 3/4 is equal to 4/3 - you have "flipped" the fraction around.
Reciprocal would do in certain cases. 1 one tenth is the reciprocal of 10 in arithmetic 270º is the reciprocal of 90º in geometry Inverse would do as well - a reciprocal is an inverse for multiplication. negation means something like the opposition in logic. complement has the meaning of opposite in some cases. opposite is itself a math term- used in geometry as in the phrase "opposite side of a parallellogram".
-My teacher likes for us to use math terms, such as reciprocal, in class.
The reciprocal of a number is: 1 divided by the number. Example: the reciprocal of 2 is 1/2 and 5 is 1/5..
A reciprocal is useful to know in math because to divide fractions, you must multiply by the second fraction's reciprocal. For example: 2/3 divided by 4/7 is the same as 2/3 times 7/4.
A reciprocal is when you take the second fraction in a division problem and flip it Then change the sign to multiply. THIS ONLY WORKS WHEN YOU ARE DIVIDING FRACTIONS!
1/a is the reciprocal of a
there is no such math term
The math term for multiplication is PRODUCT.
"Subset" IS the math term in this case.
The reciprocal of any non-zero number is one divided by that number. The reciprocal of 0 is not defined. For example, if R(x) represents the reciprocal of x, then R(6) = 1/6 R(5/7) = 1 / (5/7) = 1*(7/5) = 7/5 R(x) = 1/x
Reciprocal in math means to flip a number. 2x can also be expressed as 2/1 (2 over 1) x. So the reciprocal of 2x is 1/2 (one over two) x.
Remainder: Remainder is what you have left after dividing a number. Reciprocal: This is the multiplicative inverse of any number(ex. the reciprocal of 5 = 1/5 and the reciprocal of 4/5 = 5/4).
power in a math term is when you multiply the exponents
A term in math usually refers to a # in a arithmetic/geometric sequence
1/2. Reciprocal is the term inverted so 2 over 1 becomes 1 over 2
if you want to do on your own look in you math book reciprocals in the index you will find fast but , depends on what kind of math book you have .
The reciprocal of a number is 1 over the number or 1 divided by the number. EXAMPLE : The reciprocal of 5 is 1/5. The reciprocal of 18.7 is 1/18.7. A fraction can also have a reciprocal : The reciprocal of 1/5 is 5 (or 5/1) The reciprocal of 18/23 is 1/18/23 = 23/18.
