Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would have to disagree with ya' on that one. Which property states that the opposite of a number multiplied by itself is 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We're not really dividing here, and it doesn't have a 1 in it. Which other one could it be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, it would be letter A and here's why: Reciprocal means that the opposite of a number multiplied by itself if 1. I'll show you the example: \[\frac{ 1 }{ 16 } * \frac{ 16 }{ 1 } = \frac{ 16 }{ 16 } = 1\]
