## Reciprocal of a Fraction

 Types of Fractions Lowest Form of Fraction Conversion of Fraction Addition of Fractions Subtraction of Fractions Multiplication of Fractions Properties of Division Division of Fraction Comparision of Fraction Reciprocal of a Fraction Fraction in diagrammatic form Difference & Similarity between Fraction and Rational Numbers

The fraction obtained after interchanging the numerator and denominator of given fraction; is known as Reciprocal of a given Fraction.

In other words, a fraction obtained after inverting the given fraction is called Reciprocal of that given Fraction

Example = Find the reciprocal of 4/5
Answer = In the given Fraction 4/5
Numerator = 4
Denominator = 5

And we know to find the reciprocal we have to interchange the numerator and denominator, so we get

Numerator = 5
Denominator = 4
And Hence Reciprocal of given fraction = 5/4

Now let's try to find reciprocal of below more fraction :

Reciprocal of 1/5 = 5/1

Reciprocal of 23/10 = 10/23

Reciprocal of 100/2 = 2/100

Reciprocal of 11/5 = 5/11
