The inverse of the fraction.

This is call the "inverse" i.e if you have 13/2 the inverse would be 2/13 you can also call it reciprocated fraction ...

The answer depends on what you mean by "opposite". Many users mean additive inverse - in which case it is a negative improper fraction. Some use the term to refer to the multiplicative inverse, in which case it is a proper fraction.

Mathematically, an inverse is an opposite, it is something that reverses what its inverse does, for example, addition and subtraction are inverse functions, as are multiplication and division. The inverse of a fraction is obtained by exchanging numerator and denominator; the inverse of a half is two.

The inverse of the fraction.

Multiply by its inverse.

That might be the reciprocal - the multiplicative inverse. Just exchange numerator and denominator.

Taking the multiplicative inverse (or reciprocal) of a fraction is very easy: just exchange the numerator and the denominator. (Note: if you have a mixed fraction, convert it to an improper fraction first.)

The inverse of a fraction is simple the result of flipping it's denominator with its numerator. It is equivalent to the statement (x/y)^-1 = y/x

the fraction means for you to divide but if you are doing inverse operation, you are multiplying.

If its a fraction then we can change the numerators and denominators upside down .This is in case of fraction.
