Question

Find the multiplicative inverse or reciprocal of each of the following:$$-16$$

Solution

Multiplicative inverse of a number is a number which when multiplied by given number yields in a result of $$1$$.So, for real numbers except $$0$$,Multiplicative inverse or reciprocal of a number $$x$$ is given by$$\cfrac1x$$, because $$x\times \cfrac1x=1$$$$\therefore$$ Reciprocal of $$-16$$ is $$\cfrac1{-16}$$, which can also be written as $$\cfrac{-1}{16}$$Mathematics
