No. In fact, the reciprocal of 0 is not defined.
No. -1/9 is greater than -9.
??? explain better.
A mixed number must have an integer part (and a fractional part). Consequently, a mixed number must be greater than one. The reciprocal of a number greater than one is less than one (and conversely) since the two, when multiplied together, make 1.
When a number is a fraction, the reciprocal will always be greater than the original number. When the original number is a whole number, the reciprocal will be a fraction, which is less than a whole number.
The above statement is not true!-3/4 is a fraction which is less than 1. Its reciprocal is -4/3 which is also less than 1, NOT greater.
That's always the case.
Negative 14 is less than 14 because a positive integer is always greater than a negative integer. EX: -16 is less than 1
Reciprocal of any non - zero number [other than 1 (because reciprocal of 1 is 1)]is always less than '1' .============================The first contributor disputes the change:Sorry, Anu. What about the non-zero number 0.5, whose reciprocal is 2 ? ? ?
Its reciprocal is either less than 0 or greater than 1.
The integer "-8" is less than "-7".
