The reciprocal of the fraction is simply the fraction raised to the -1 power. Simply "flip the fraction upside down" to find the reciprocal. e.g. 3/23 has a reciprocal of 23/3.
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.
A reciprocal of a fraction is when you interchange the numerator and the denominator.Example:3/5: reciprocal = 5/3The reciprocal of a fraction is when you interchange the numerator and the denominator.Example:3/5: reciprocal = 5/3
multiply by the reciprocal
To get the reciprocal of a fraction, exchange the numerator and denominator.
Mainly when you divide by a fraction - that is equivalent to multiplying by its reciprocal.
To divide by a fraction, multiply by its reciprocal. In this instance, 23 / 1/3 = 23 x 3 = 69.
The product of -1 and -1 is 1. The reciprocal of a fraction is called its reciprocal.
You have the reciprocal. Unless you started with a fraction equivalent to 0.
Reciprocal just means that you flip the fraction... your fraction is -p/4 the reciprocal is 4/-p the reciprocal is extremely important when dividing fractions. because when you divide fractions you have to take the reciprocal of the bottom fraction and then multiply it to your top fraction to get your answer.
A reciprocal refers to a mathematical expression or function, that when multiplied by a number, the product is always 1. The reciprocal of 23 is 1/23.
The reciprocal of a fraction is when you flip the two fractions as shown . 1/8 = 8/1
1/3. The fraction for 3 is 3/1, and to find a reciprocal, you have to flip the fraction.
For a fraction A/B, the fraction is improper if A > B. The reciprocal is B/A. So now A is the denominator, and B is the numerator, and B < A, so the reciprocal is a proper fraction. The answer would be always.
Because division by a number (the second fraction) is the same as multiplication by its reciprocal.
Dividing a friction is multiplying by its reciprocal. The reciprocal of a fraction is the numerator and the denominator switched around.
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.
It is a reciprocal.
The reciprocal, or a proper fraction.
The 'flip' (the reciprocal) of the same fraction.
When you turn a fraction over you get a reciprocal.
