## Multiplicative Inverse

 Rule 1 Rule 2

Definition:
Multiplicative Inverse
consists of two words:
Multiplicative means to multiply
Inverse means in reverse order.

Multiplicative Inverse together means to multiply in reverse order.

Let's consider the following expression:
2 X 5
7

Now, multiplicative inverse of the above expression is:
2 X 7
5

Some rules associated with Multiplicative Inverse are discussed in following ways :-

Rule 1 = If product of two Fractional Numbers is equal to 1, then each of the Fractional Numbers is the Multiplicative Inverse of other.

Rule 2 = If the product of a Fractional Number and a Whole Number is equal to 1, then each is the Multiplicative Inverse of other.

Rule 3 = Multiplicative Inverse of 1 is also 1.

Rule 4 = Multiplicative Inverse of 0 (zero) does not exists

Rule 1 and Rule 2 are further explained with examples in above respective links.
