Your question ask us to find the multiplicative inverse of a I'm calling that multiplicative inverse b. The multiplicative identity is 1. If a and b are multiplicative inverses of each other, then the product of a and b is 1.

ab=1 1/9 * b=1 You need to solve this for b in other words.

If you don't know how to solve equations, then you can always remember to take the opposite of the reciprocal. Just so you know 0 doesn't have a multiplicative inverse.
