if two numbers are opposites, their reciprocals are also opposites.
Yes they will actually. Let's test this: Let our number be 46. Then the opposite of 46 is -46. The reciprocal for both is 1/46 and -1/46, which are both opposite of each other. Is this for like a lesson on absolute values or something.
