A reciprocal (in mathematics) is the multiplicative inverse of any given number.

This means the reciprocal of "1/x" would be "x/1".

In the case where you have a mixed fraction like "two and three fifths", convert the mixed fraction into a improper fraction to make things easier.

2 and 3/5 = 13/5

Now flip the fraction:

13/5 reciprocated = 5/13.

Therefore, the reciprocal of "two and three fifths" is "thirteen fifths (13/5)"
