Algebra I: Identify multiplicative inverse
This is a free lesson from our course in Algebra I
In this lesson you'll look at how to find the multiplicative inverse or the reciprocal. The video above will help you understand how to find multiplicative inverses or reciprocals with the help of several examples . Overall, if a x b = 1, then a is the reciprocal of b. The reciprocal of x is 1/x. In other words, a reciprocal is a fraction flipped upside down. Multiplicative inverse means the same thing as reciprocal. For example, the multiplicative inverse (reciprocal) of 12 is 1/12 and the multiplicative inverse (reciprocal) 3/5 of is 5/3.
