To find the reciprocal of a number or fraction, you follow these steps:

### For a Number:

1. **Identify the number**:

For example, 5

2. **Write it as a fraction**:

5 = 5/1

3. **Invert the fraction**:

Swap the numerator and the denominator. So, the reciprocal of 5/1 is 1/5

### For a Fraction:

1. **Identify the fraction**:

For example, for fraction 3/4

2. **Invert the fraction**:

Swap the numerator and the denominator. So, the reciprocal of 3/4 is 4/3
