## DAV Class 5 Maths Ch 4 Worksheet 10 Solutions

Question 1.
Find the reciprocals of the following:
(a) $$\frac{2}{3}$$
Solution:
To make the reciprocal of a given fraction, we interchange the numerator and the denominator.
$$\frac{2}{3}=\frac{3}{2}$$
(Interchanging numerator and denominator)

Solution:
$$\frac{5}{12}=\frac{12}{5}$$
(Interchanging numerator and denominator)

(c) $$\frac{1}{12}$$
Solution:
$$\frac{1}{12}$$ = $$\frac{12}{1}$$ = 12
(Interchanging numerator and denominator) (d) $$\frac{1}{18}$$
Solution:
$$\frac{1}{18}$$ = $$\frac{18}{1}$$ = 18
(Interchanging numerator and denominator)

(e) 1
Solution:
1 = $$\frac{1}{1}$$ = 1
(Interchanging numerator and denominator)

(f) 8
Solution:
8 = $$\frac{1}{8}$$
(Interchanging numerator and denominator)

(g) 5$$\frac{2}{3}$$
Solution:
5$$\frac{2}{3}$$ = $$\frac{17}{3}$$ = $$\frac{3}{17}$$
(Interchanging numerator and denominator) (h) 33$$\frac{1}{3}$$
Solution:
33$$\frac{1}{3}$$ = $$\frac{100}{3}$$ = $$\frac{3}{100}$$
(Interchanging numerator and denominator)

(i) 3$$\frac{5}{8}$$
Solution:
3$$\frac{5}{8}$$ = $$\frac{29}{8}$$ = $$\frac{8}{29}$$
(Interchanging numerator and denominator)

DAV Class 5 Maths Chapter 4 Worksheet 10 Notes

If we interchange the numerator and the denominator, we get the reciprocal of the given fraction.

When we multiply reciprocals, the product is one.
E.g., Multiply and find the product of 3 and $$\frac{1}{3}$$
i.e., 3 × $$\frac{1}{3}$$ = $$\frac{3}{1} \times \frac{1}{3}$$
= $$\frac{3 \times 1}{1 \times 3}$$
= $$\frac{3}{3}$$
= 1
