3
Course 1 5-9 Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers Reciprocals can help you divide by fractions. Two numbers are reciprocals if their product is 1.

4
Course 1 5-9 Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers Check It Out: Example 1A Find the reciprocal. 1 4 __ 1 4 = 1 Think: of what number is 1? 1 4 __ 1 4 4 = 1 of is 1. 1 4 __ 4 1 The reciprocal of is 4. 1 4 __

5
Course 1 5-9 Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers Additional Example 1A: Finding Reciprocals Find the reciprocal. 1 9 __ 1 9 = 1 Think: of what number is 1? 1 9 __ 1 9 1 9 9 = 1 of is 1. 1 9 __ 9 1 The reciprocal of is 9. 1 9 __

Course 1 5-9 Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers Check It Out: Example 1B Find the reciprocal. 4 5 __ 4 5 = 1 Think: of what number is 1? 4 5 __ 5 4 4 5 = = 1 20 __ of is 1. 4 5 __ 5 4 The reciprocal of is. 4 5 __ 5 4

8
Course 1 5-9 Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers Look at the relationship between the fractions and. If you switch the numerator and denominator of a fraction, you will find its reciprocal. Dividing by a number is the same as multiplying by its reciprocal. 3 4 __ 4 3 24 ÷ 4 = 624 = 6 1 4 __
