# Worksheet on Multiplicative Inverse

We will practice the questions given in the worksheet on multiplicative inverse of a fractional number.

We know, to get the reciprocal of a given fraction, we interchange the numerator and the denominator and if we multiply the reciprocals, the product is one.

I. Find the reciprocal of the following:

(i) $$\frac{2}{3}$$

(ii) $$\frac{5}{12}$$

(iii) $$\frac{1}{12}$$

(iv) $$\frac{1}{18}$$

(v) 1

(vi) 8

(vii) 1$$\frac{2}{3}$$

(viii) 33$$\frac{1}{3}$$

(ix) 17

II. Fill in the blanks:

(i) $$\frac{1}{27}$$ ×  ____ = 1

(ii) $$\frac{42}{1}$$ × $$\frac{1}{.......}$$ = 1

(iii) Reciprocal of 9/4 is  ____

(iv) Multiplicative inverse of 28 is  ____

(v) Multiplicative inverse of 31 is  ____

(vi) The reciprocal of ____ is equal to itself.

(vii) The reciprocal of whole number will always be a ________ fraction.

(viii) The multiplicative inverse of mixed number will always be a ________ fraction.

III. State whether these are reciprocals of each other:

(i) $$\frac{1}{2}$$, 2

(ii) $$\frac{3}{2}$$, $$\frac{3}{2}$$

(iii) $$\frac{5}{9}$$, $$\frac{9}{5}$$

(iv) $$\frac{5}{11}$$, $$\frac{4}{11}$$

(v) 5$$\frac{1}{3}$$, $$\frac{16}{3}$$

(vi) $$\frac{2}{3}$$, 1$$\frac{1}{2}$$
