*.A reciprocal is two factors that when multiplied will give the product of one. Examples are...*

**RECIPROCAL****5/11(11/5)=1**

(2/3)(3/2)=1

(-4/5)(-5/4)=1

(2/3)(3/2)=1

(-4/5)(-5/4)=1

All of those are reciprocals.

Also we learned about the

**Identity of One**.

**The Identity of One is any number divided/multiplied by 1 is itself.**Examples are...

**17/1=17**

6.432/1=6.432

6.432/1=6.432

Then Mr.Backe gave us this question out of the blue...

1/2 / 3/4= 1/2 * 4/3

= 4/6

= 2/3

1/2 / 3/4= 1/2 * 4/3

= 4/6

= 2/3

These are steps of dividing fractions..

**1)Find the Reciprocal of the divisor**

2)Multiply both fractions by the reciprocal of the divisor

3)The divisor becomes 1.Anything divided by 1 is itself.

4)Simplify if possible.

Thank you for reading my very late scribe post and again sorry for it being late. Well enjoy and leave many comments Please.

Magicman 17/1 = ? Try showing how to do divide using a mixed number.

Great job! But 17/1 doesn't equal one. It equals 17. And add more colours and pictures. This scribe is also very dull. Fix your mistakes. Great job again!

Awesome job! I also agree with Zerlina that you should add more colours and pictures because the scribe looks a little dull. Also, I think you should do spell check before publishing your post, their are a few mistakes that could be fixed easily. That is all, good job!
