# If the multiplicative inverse of 15/3 is a/b, then find the value of (a+b).

The value of a + b can be obtained by mathematically interpreting the given data.

## Answer: The value of (a+b) for the given data is 18k (where k is the proportionality constant). (a+b) = 1 if the constant of proportionality is 1.

Let's find the value of (a+b)

**Explanation:**

Given that 15/3 is the multiplicative inverse of a/b

We know that the multiplicative inverse of a fraction is the reciprocal of it.

The multiplicative inverse of 15/3 = 3/15

a/b = 3/15

Then a = 3k and b = 15k where k is the constant of proportionality

So, a + b = 3k + 15k = 18k

If k = 1, then (a+b) = 18k = 18 × 1 = 18
