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!

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.
