# What is the reciprocal of 6 2/7?

Sep 15, 2017

$\frac{7}{44}$

#### Explanation:

The reciprocal is a number that you multiply your original number by, and you get 1.

The reciprocal of 1/4, for example, is 4.

$6 \frac{2}{7} = \frac{44}{7}$, and the reciprocal of that is $\frac{7}{44}$

So you can see the general procedure. If it's not a fraction, turn it into one. (Whole numbers are fractions, for example, $6 = \frac{6}{1}$.)

Then, turn it upside down, and that's your reciprocal.
