In this lesson, you will learn about using reciprocals to solve equations. A reciprocal is simply a number with the numerator and denominator flipped around, and it is used to multiply instead of dividing by a fraction. The lesson covers examples of finding reciprocals, as well as using them to solve equations by multiplying both sides of the equation by the reciprocal of the fraction. The lesson also emphasizes the importance of using reciprocals instead of dividing by fractions to avoid potential errors.
