When you multiply by 1, the same number is there, because your only putting up ONE of that number. For example, 3x1=3 because there's only one three there. 3x2=6 because there are two threes, and together they make six. if you STILL don't understand, lemme try to make it clearer. Multiplication=Division, right? Division is separating numbers into groups. 6/2=3 because you split the 6 into two groups of 3. 3/1=3 because you split it into ONE group of three.

I am not sure about the question, but If 1/4 is a number then (1)/(1/4) which ends up being 4 is its reciprocal. Any number "N" has a reciprocal equal to 1/N and when you multiply the two as in N x 1/N, you will always get 1, that is a number multiplied by its reciprocal will always yield 1. Given one number you can find the other by dividing 1 by the given number
