# What is the reciprocal of -2/3?

Reciprocal is a number that when multiplied to the given number gives the product 1.

## Answer: The reciprocal of -2/3 is -3/2.

Let us find the reciprocal of -2/3.

**Explanation:**

The reciprocal of any number is its multiplicative inverse. If the product of two numbers is one, then one number is the reciprocal of the other.

For example, if a × b = 1, then b is reciprocal of a and vice-versa.

a = 1/b and b = 1/a

Please note that the number '0' does not have any reciprocal.

Here, a = -2/3 then b = 1/(-2/3) = 3/(-2) = -3/2

Therefore, -2/3 and -3/2 are reciprocals to each other.
