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.
