*Today's class we discussed about Multiplicative Inverse.*

*Multiplicative inverese is another way to solve a problem when dividing integers.*

*Do you know how to use this? well I do. Look at this problem*

*6/(-2)=?*

*try to answer this at your calculator ......did your calculator said its error*

*No!!! Your Calculator said that the answer is -3 the question is why is that?*

*here is my inderstanding about this lesson.*

*try to answer this using quotative inverse (how many -2 are in 6)*

*WE CAN'T USE THAT ONE BECAUSE WE CAN'T MAKE NEGATIVES*

*now try to answer this using partative.(how many equal parts are in -2 when we have 6.)*

*WE CAN'T ANSWER THAT ALSO BECAUSE WE CAN'T MAKE GROUPS OF*

*NEGATIVE.*

*HERE IS A GOOD PICTURE OF TO UNDERSTAND MULTIPLICATIVE INVERSE.*
