Answer:

Reciprocal of #6# is #1/6#.

Explanation:

A number #x# is a reciprocal of another number #a#, if the product of #x# and #a# is #1# i.e.

#x xx a =1#. Now multiplying both sides by #1/a#, we get

#x xx a xx 1/a=1 xx 1/a# or

#x xx cancel(a) xx 1/cancel(a)=1 xx 1/a# or

#x=1/a#

Hence, it is obvious then that reciprocal of #6# is #1/6#.

Answer:

The reciporal of #6# is #1/6#.

Explanation:

My source.

So, the reciprocal of any number is 1 divided by the number is the reciprocal of that number. It is pretty much the opposite of the number. 6 can also be written as #6/1#, so you just flip the numbers around. So, it will be #1/6#! But when you need he reciprocal of a fraction, you just flip the number around. For example, lets say that you needed to find the reciprocal of #4/3#, the reciprocal of it will be #3/4#! So now you know how to find a reciprocal of a (whole) number and a fraction! I hope this will help you! 🙂
