Holt CA Course 1 4-5 Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers Reciprocals can help you divide by fractions. Two numbers are reciprocals or multiplicative inverses if their product is 1. The reciprocal of is 3 because 1313 1313 3 = 1313 3131 = 3333 = 1. Dividing by a number is the same as multiplying by its reciprocal. 6 ÷ 3 = 2 1313 6 = 2 same answer reciprocals
