You first convert the mixed fraction to an improper fraction. Example: what's the reciprocal of 3 2/5 (three and two-fifths)? Answer: 3 2/5 is equal to 17/5; the reciprocal of that is 5/17.

Why is this answer correct? That's because 5/17 times 17/5 is equal to 85/85 = 1. And that is the definition of "reciprocal".
