What is the reciprocal of 3.21?
I'm not sure but I think that this is what you have to do:
3 21/100= 321/100= 100/321
Answer: 100/321
Is this correct? If not, show me how to do it, and give me the correct answer.
Thank you.

DrBob222,
That is one way to do it.
The reciprocal of a number is the number divided INTO 1.
Take the reciprocal of 3.21
1/3.21 = 0.3115 which I would round to 0.312.
You actually did yours this way.
3.21 x (100/100) = 321/100
Reciprocal is 100/321 and I plug that into my calculator and get 0.3115 which I would round to 0.312.

Chris,
So, my answer is correct?

DrBob222,
Your "indicated" answer is correct. Actually, you didn't finish and come up with a number (an answer) but left it as 100/321. That's ok if that is what your teacher wants.
