# Reciprocal Calculator

Finding a **reciprocal** of any fractional term is **not** a difficult task because you only have to invert the **position** of numbers. In simple **words**, you have to change the numerator **into** a denominator and the denominator into a numerator. But the **problem** comes when you have to deal with a mixed fraction or want to reciprocal multiple fractions quickly without making mistakes.

Do you want to **excel** in this conversion and make the process fast? You should use the **reciprocal calculator** that has been designed for this particular task. This maths calculator has been programmed for this **conversion** you can use it within a **few** clicks. Read on to **learn** about this calculator in detail and **how** it will help you in converting fractions to their **reciprocals**

## What is Reciprocal Calculator?

It is an **online** handy calculator that will **invert** the position of **numbers** in a particular fraction. Reciprocal is the **term** that is written by interconverting the position of the **numerator** and **denominator**.

This **reciprocal calculator** will automatically **perform** this position conversion once you **insert** the values. You can insert a **simple** fraction, **number**, or mixed fraction to check its reciprocal. This is the main **use** of this calculator that it will **show** you the reciprocal of a fraction **even** if you have inserted a mixed **fraction**.

## How to find Reciprocal?

Anyone can find the **reciprocal** of a fraction by changing the **numerator** to the **denominator** and the denominator to the numerator of a fraction. **Undoubtedly**, you can perform this conversion manually but the problem **comes** when you have to do the **same** for a mixed fraction.

You need to **convert** a mixed fraction to a **simple** fraction first to **find** its reciprocal. It will take time and **effort** that you can **reduce** using this reciprocal calculator. This **calculator** will automatically **perform** the conversion of fractions and **show** you the reciprocal of the **resultant** fraction only.

For your assistance, we have found reciprocals of the fractions manually as well as through this calculator.

**Example 1:**

Find the reciprocal of 13/19.

**Solution:**

To find the reciprocal, we only have to change the position of the numbers.

ciprocal of 13/19 = 19/13

**Example 2:**

Find the Reciprocal of 3 2/7.

**Solution:**

Through the manual approach, we have to follow the upcoming steps to find the reciprocal of the fraction.

Simple fraction = 23/7

Now, we can easily find the reciprocal of this resultant equation.

Reciprocal = 7/23
