More generally so do these hands

Whatever the number

*x*is declared as

We have already seen that the solution to can be found from

How about ? We already know that the solution is since we know

The rules for solving gives that so we have that

This is true for any number

*x*

What about something like ? This comes from the solution to

and

When then

When then

The solution to is

A new name when One is divided by a number the you get the reciprocal of the number

The reciprocal of 6 is

The reciprocal of is 6

The reciprocal of is

The reciprocal of is

You form the reciprocal of a fraction by swapping over the numerator and denominator.

The product of a number and its reciprocal is always One.

In Dividing Fractions

We found that

Instead of dividing by a fraction we multiply by the reciprocal of the fraction.
