To get the reciprocal of a fraction, exchange the numerator and the denominator (the top and bottom parts). The reciprocal of a negative fraction is also negative.
The negative reciprocal of zero would be any undefined fraction. 0/x=0 negative reciprocal: -(x/0)= undefined.
It would be the negative of the negative reciprocal. And since the negative of a negative is a posivie, it is the positive reciprocal.. For example, if the slope was -3, the other would be 1/3.
Taking the reciprocal (multiplicative inverse) does not affect the positive or negative status of an integer. So the reciprocal of a negative number is negative and the reciprocal of a positive number is positive. The reciprocals will be opposites (positive/negative) just as the original numbers were.
negative reciprocal slopes
The negative reciprocal of any gradient gives the gradient of the line perpendicular to it. If you had a line of gradient 2, the negative reciprocal would be -1/2 Just change the sign on the number and flip the number/fraction to get the negative reciprocal.
The cosecant is the reciprocal of the sine function. Now, the reciprocal of a positive number is positive, and the reciprocal of a negative number is negative.
The reciprocal of one number is another number which when both are multiplied, give a product of 1. In the case of a whole number, the reciprocal is 1 divided by that number.... so the reciprocal of 25 is 1/25 or 0.04
the reciprocal would be negative 3 over 7, unless you are trying to find the negative reciprocal, then the answer would be positive 3 over 7. hope this helped you :)
0.25 no, 0.25 (or 1/4), is the reciprocal of 4. the reciprocal of 25 is 1/25
A reciprocal is the number flipped and multiplied by a negative, so 15/1 as a reciprocal is -1/15.
reciprocal of a negative is still a negative, and 2 and a quarter can be rewritten as 9/4. The reciprocal of this number is 4/9. Therefore, the reciprocal of -2 and a quarter is -4/9.
The reciprocal of a number is 1 divide by that number - the reciprocal of -3 is 1/(-3), or -1/3. So, the negative reciprocal of -3 would be 1/3 (without the minus sign).
The reciprocal of a number is the number backwards in fraction form. For example, the reciprocal of 25 would be 1/25. The reciprocal of 5/10 would be 10/5.
reciprocal of 2 over 25 = 25/2
Actually the reciprocal of any number is that number in the denominator instead of in the numerator. The reciprocal of -3 is 1 over -3.
The reciprocal of -1/10 is -10, and the negative of -10 is 10 .
Negative reciprocal is something you use in math that often times help you find a perpendicular line to an equation. ex: for an equation with a slope of 5x, the recriprocal would be -1/5x. what you do is you flip flop the bottom and the top, 1/5x. That is the reciprocal alone and to make it a negative reciprocal you just simply add the negative sign.
It does not work that way. A negative power is simply the reciprocal. So that x-a = 1/xa The reciprocal is negative or positive according to whether the number itself is negative or positive. [And, if the number is 0, the reciprocal is not defined.]
