Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to **nub****trek**.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

What does the word 'reciprocal' mean?

- reuse; reprocess
- backwards; in reverse

The answer is 'backwards; in reverse'.

Consider the multiplication `4 xx 3`

• `4` is the multiplicand

• `3` is the multiplier

• `12` is the product

The multiplier has modified the multiplicand.

How to reverse or take backward the multiplication?

The reverse of the multiplier `3` is the reciprocal `1/3`

Because the product `12`, when multiplied by the reciprocal `1/3` gives the multiplicand `4`.

Reciprocal is also called the multiplicative inverse.

Consider the multiplication `2/3 xx 5/8=5/12`

• `2/3` is the multiplicand

• `5/8` is the multiplier

• `5/12` is the product

The reverse of the multiplier `5/8` is the reciprocal `8/5`

Because the product `5/12`, when multiplied by the reciprocal `8/5` gives the multiplicand `2/3`.

Reciprocal is also called the multiplicative inverse.

What is the reciprocal of `14/18 `?

- `41/81`
- `18/14`

The answer is '`18/14`'

What is the reciprocal of `1 3/4 `

- `1 4/3`
- `4/7`

The answer is '`4/7`'. The mixed fraction `1 3/4`has to be converted to equivalent improper fraction `7/4` before finding the reciprocal `4/7`

backwards; in reverse

The answer is 'backwards; in reverse'.

Consider the multiplication 4 times 3 ;; 4 is the multiplicand ;; 3 is the multiplier ;; 12 is the product. ;; the multiplier has modified the multiplicand. How to reverse or take backward the multiplication? ;; The reverse of the multiplier 3 is the reciprocal 1 by 3. Because, the product 12, when multiplied by the reciprocal 1 by 3 gives the multiplicand 4. ;;Reciprocal is also called the multiplicative inverse.

Consider the multiplication 2 by 3, multiplied by, 5 by 8 ;; 2 by 3 is the multiplicand ;; 5 by 8 is the multiplier ;; 5 by 12 is the product. ;; The reverse of the multiplier 5 by 8 is the reciprocal 8 by 5. Because, the product 5 by 12, when multiplied by the reciprocal 8 by 5 gives the multiplicand 2 by 3. ;; Reciprocal is also called the multiplicative inverse.

What is the fraction 2/3 to 3/2 called?

reciprocal;inverse

The answer is 'reciprocal'. It is also called "multiplicative inverse"

reciprocal or multiplicative inverse of a fraction is the fraction that inverses the number to a product result 1.

Reciprocal of a Fraction: For a fraction p by q, the reciprocal or multiplicative inverse is q by p, as p by q multiplied q by p equals 1.
