# Reciprocals

In this comprehensive guide, the main objective is to equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively locate reciprocals.

**A step-by-step guide to** Find **Reciprocals**

A reciprocal of a number is 1 divided by the number.

Reciprocals signify something which is identical on both sides.

For instance, the number 9’s is 1 divided by 9, thus written as \(\frac{1}{9}\).

Reciprocals are also a number taken to the power of \(-1\).

For instance, \(\frac{1}{9}\) is identical to 9 to the power of \(-1\).

A reciprocal is the reverse of a value or a number. So, whenever they are multiplied, they give an equal answer.

**Reciprocals – Example 1**

Write the reciprocal of \(\frac{4}{20}\).**Solution:**

Changed the numerator and the denominator to obtain its reciprocal. \(\frac{20}{4}=5\)

**Reciprocals – Example 2**

Write the reciprocal of \(\frac{-1}{7}\).**Solution:**

Changed the numerator and the denominator to obtain its reciprocal. \(\frac{-7}{1}=-7\)
