How do you use RECIPROCALS to solve equations without variables. I do not want the answer to the equation. I want the steps to solving it with RECIPROCALS. Thanks!

ex.

37.6 + 2.5

-----------

48(7.8 - 10.5)

You have presented no equation in your example. What you have shown has no reciprocals.

An equation with no variables would be a statement that two different combinations of numbers add up to the same value, sucn as 2 + 3 = 4 + 1

You question is unclear.

My teacher must expect the impossible. She said that you must use the reciprocal key to solve it. I put down the equation exactly as she gave it to me.
