2 and 1/2 are multiplicative inverses of each other product of multiplicative inverses give multiplicative identity which is one (1)

You can also think that multiplication is adding. 2* 1/2 is 2 times one half (or adding 1/2 two times: 1/2 + 1/2). If you have half a cookie, and another half cookie, then you get 1 whole cookie.
