Answer:

The reciprocal of #1/10# is #10/1#

Explanation:

The reciprocal is also known as the multiplicative inverse, or in easy language, the "multiplying opposite".

It simply means that the number (always a fraction) is flipped upside down.

The reciprocal of #a/b# is #b/a#

The reciprocal of #1/10# is #10/1#

The reciprocal of #2/3# is #3/2#

The reciprocal of #-8/5# is #-5/8#

The reciprocal of #4# is #1/4#

The product of a number and its reciprocal is always #1#

#1/10 xx 10/1 = 1#

#-8/5 xx -5/8 = 1#
