The technical definition is "(of a quantity or function) related toanother so that their product is one. The reciprocal of a fraction is mostly flipping the fraction Ex. 5/2… the reciprocal would be 2/5, you're mostly just flippingit. A reciprocal is a mathematical term. It is often used in theinverse of multiplication. For example, the reciprocal of 100 is1/100. (MORE)

Answer .
The reciprocal of a number is the inverse of that number; that is, 1 divided by that number. So, the reciprocal of x is 1/ x , and the reciprocal of 1/ x is 1/(…1/ x ) = x . (Taking the reciprocal of the reciprocal of a number yields the original number.).
Examples:.
The reciprocal of 2 is 1/2. .
The reciprocal of 1/2 is 1/(1/2) = 2. .
The reciprocal of 3/4 is 1/(3/4) = 4/3. (MORE)

Reciprocity is the exchange of gifts in favors in order to pressure someone into doing or purchasing something. It also has a more general meaning; you have two people or part…ies involved in a transaction, and each gives something and each gets something; there is an exchange. This is in comparison to a transaction in which only one party gives, and the other only receives. If someone asks me to donate to their cause (whatever that cause may be) and I do, there is no reciprocity (unless you count the receipt which I might use to claim a tax deduction - and even so, that is a very feeble form of reciprocity).

A reciprocal is the result you get upon reciprocating something,where to reciprocate is to calculate 1/x , with x the thing to bereciprocated. The reciprocal of 2 is 1/2, that… of x 2 +376x is1/(x 2 +376x). The reciprocal of 1 is 1, and that of zerois undefined since x/0 is undefined for all x. Obviously if youstart with a fraction, the numerator and denominator switch: 1/(a/b) is the same as 1*(b/a)=b/a (MORE)
