could some one please explain to me reciprocal how to find the reciprocal my math home work says

find the reciprocal of (-1/8)(13/2)(4)

reciprocal you change over so is the
-1/8 -8/1 or would it be 8/1
13/2 would be 2/13
4 would be 4/1 then 1/4

then i would multiply all together like regular fractions am i on the right path please some tell me

correct, that is the way.

I would determine the value of the problem, then take the reciprocal.
I see -(1*13*4)/(8*2)= 13/4
so the reciprocl would be -4/13.
