What Does a Multiplicative Inverse or Reciprocal Mean?

A multiplicative inverse or reciprocal for a number n, denoted by 1n or n−1 (n to the power of minus one), is a number which when multiplied by n, their product is 1. In other words, the reciprocal of any number is one divided by that number. The reciprocal of a fraction xy is yx. To find the multiplicative inverse of a real number, just divide 1 by that number.
