Remember Reciprocals Of Numbers With Shortcuts

Rahul S

I am an experienced, qualified teacher and tutor with over 4 years of experience in teaching Maths ,...

Reciprocal of 1: 1 → 1 = 1.0 Easy no? Wait, it gets harder. Reciprocal of 2: 2 → ½ = 0.5 You should know this already. Reciprocal of 3 and 6: 3 → 1/3 = 0.33 Again, an easy number to remember. Remember this number for reciprocal of 6. 6 → 1/6 = 0.166 Just try to memorize this,... read more

Reciprocal of 1:

1 → 1 = 1.0
Easy no?  Wait, it gets harder.

Reciprocal of 2:

2 → ½ = 0.5
You should know this already.

Reciprocal of 3 and 6:

3 → 1/3 = 0.33
Again, an easy number to remember. Remember this number for reciprocal of 6.
6 → 1/6 = 0.166
Just try to memorize this, or half the reciprocal of 3.

Reciprocal of 4:

4 → ¼ = 0.25
Remember! 4 parts of 25 make a hundred!

Reciprocal of 5:

5 → 1/5 = 0.2
If ½ is 0.5 then 1/5 is 0.2! Obviously!

Reciprocal of 7 and its Multiples:

1 4 2 8 5 7
Remember this sequence. How to do that?
Remember that this is for 7! So 2 Times 7 is 14. 2 Times 14 is 28. 2 Times 28 is 56, but we want to end it with a 7, so let’s make it 57. But it always forms a cycle.
1/7 = 0.142857 → starts with the smallest number in the sequence.
2/7 = 0.285714 → same cycle but starts with the second smallest number in the sequence.
3/7 = 0.428571 → same cycle but starts with the third smallest number in the sequence.
4/7 = 0.571428 → starts with the fourth smallest number in the sequence.
5/7 = 0.714285 → starts with the fifth smallest number in the sequence.
6/7 = 0.857142 → starts with the sixth smallest number in the sequence.

Reciprocal of 8 and its Multiples:

1/8 = 0.125
2/8 = ¼ = 0.25
3/8 = 3 × 1/8 = 0.375
4/8 = ½ = 0.5
5/8 = 4/8 + 1/8 = 0.5 + 0.125 = 0.625
6/8 = ¾ = 0.75
7/8 = 6/8 + 1/8 = 0.75 + 1.25 = 0.875

Reciprocal of 9 and its Multiples:

1/9 = 0.111111…
2/9 = 0.222222…
3/9 = 0.333333…
You get the picture…  All the way up to:
8/9 = 0.888888…

Reciprocal of 10:

10 → 1/10 = 0.1
Another sitter!

Reciprocal of 11 and its Multiples:

1/11 = 0.090909…
Observe that the reciprocal of 09 has a recurring 11. And the reciprocal of 11 has a recurring 09.
2/11 = 0.181818…
3/11 = 0.272727…
Just like with the reciprocal of 9  All the way up to:
10/11 = 0.909090…

Reciprocal of 12:

1/12 → ½ × 1/6 = ½ × 0.166666 = 0.083333…
Now learn to compound your fractions mentally.

Reciprocal of 13:

1/13 = 0.076923
Notice that there is a reversed 26 and a reversed 39 (both multiples of 13) in the fraction. Lastly, ½ of 13 = 6.5, which rounded off gives us 7. Don’t forget to add that extra 0 after the decimal point! So when we write the reciprocal of 13, let us start from the right.
__ → __ → __ → 9 → __ → 3
__ → __ → 6 → 9 → 2 → 3
__ → 7 → 6 → 9 → 2 → 3
0 → 7 → 6 → 9 → 2 → 3

Reciprocal of 14 and its Multiples:

1 4 2 8 5 7
And the sequence is back! With a modification!
1/14 = 0.07 142857 142857 → this time it begins with 07, followed by the sequence starting with the smallest digit.
2/14 = 1/7 = 0.14 285714 285714 → beginning with the 2nd multiple of 07, followed by the sequence starting with the 2nd smallest digit.
3/14 = 0.21 428571 428571 → beginning with the 3rd multiple of 07, followed by the sequence starting with the 3rd smallest digit.
4/14 = 2/7 = 0.28 571428 571428 → beginning with the 4th multiple of 07, followed by the sequence starting with the 4th smallest digit.
5/14 = 0.35 714285 714285 → beginning with the 5th multiple of 07, followed by the sequence starting with the 5th smallest digit.
6/14 = 0.42 857142 857142 → beginning with the 6th multiple of 07, followed by the sequence starting with the 6th smallest digit.

Reciprocal of 15:

1/15 = 1/3 × 1/5 = 0.33333 × 0.2
Don’t get frightened! Multiplication by 0.2 is not as terrifying as it seems! Just multiply the number by ‘2’ and add an extra ‘0’ after the decimal point!
1/15 = 0.066666…

Reciprocal of 16:

1/16 = ½ × 1/8 = ½ × 0.125 = 0.0625
Once again, you can apply cascading fractions.

Reciprocal of 17:

1/17 = 0.058823
This needs rote memorization! Sorry!

Reciprocal of 18:

1/18 = ½ × 1/9 = ½ × 0.111111 = 0.055555…

Reciprocal of 19:

1/19 = 0.052631
What’s one more to remember?! Give this one a shot too!

Reciprocal of 20:

1/20 = 0.05
Now that you have seen how to remember fractions, we’re sure you can figure this one out!

Today the world is changing very fast and everyone is busy with their own world. Every day brings a new challenge to win over, and we hardly get time to relaxed ourself. Nowdays everyone is speaking that they need quality time, they want to relax and di-stress themselves.

The best way of this is to adopt an hobby.one should first look into his/ her interests, hobbies basically a biggest stress buster in our life. Everyone should adopt an hobby like reading, writing, dancing painting and many more, whatever thing that interests you.

Good Handwriting skills create a confident child!

In this backdrop, this page has been created.

Resources can be accessed here for learning and improving handwriting of your child.

Access is free for ALL in ALL countries.

Handwriting Tips

General learning-step practice tips

# Let the child explore by scribbling.
# Start with pattern tracing.
# Watch the early letter writing-learning video (provided later on this page).
# Then do finger tracking of uppercase/capital letters as seen in the video, on sand or salt.
# Write each letter on blank paper (without any ruling). Do it for uppercase/capital letters only.
# Write the set of letters already learnt (to write). Circle the ones that are not okay. Write the same again and again over the next couple of days.
# Write each letter on English notebook. Do it for the upper case letters only.
# Write the set of letters already learnt to write. Circle the ones that are not okay. Write the same again and again over the next couple of days.
# Now proceed to learn lowercase / small letters.
# Practice regularly.

General tips to help improve handwriting

# It's never going to be perfect. Just work on it to have clarity, neat and look good.
# Hold the writing instrument (pen or pencil) comfortably. The grip must not be too tight - no need to fatigue your fingers/hand while writing.
# Maintain consistent slanting.
# Paper should be at an angle - different direction for left handers and right handers.
# Letter parts to be within defined lines.
# Space letters evenly in the words.
# Space words evenly in the sentences.
# Choose the style you like and are comfortable with - regular or curve.
# Practice, practice and practice.

General learning tips

# Watch closely someone write each letter and also words.
A teacher/tutor / parent can write and child can watch. The other tools are videos that show writing.
# Learn-Teach to write letters in regular font/style, not in the A-Z sequence of letters. Learn-Teach each set of letters together. This applies to upper case as well as lower case letters. Details are in the workbook. An example follows.

# Learn-Teach capital letters in regular style, not in the A-Z sequence of letters but as:

* Straight lines only
I T L F E H

* Straight and slant lines
V W X Y A N M K Z

* Straight and curvy lines
D P B R J G Q U

* Curvy lines only

Try this very simple beginner level song on guitar called "CALM" composed by Varun(myself) and Aarabhy(The other guitar faculty)

 

 

Hope you understood the scale of the song: E major

This is a very simple piece that anyone can try out. The peculiarity of this melody (in E major) is that 1st(ie, root note - E) and the 5th note(ie, the note B) on the scale are coveniently placed on the 1st & 2nd open strings on the guitar. This makes it very easy for accompanying a melody played on other strings in E major/ E minor. This piece in particular is simplified and requires movement in only one string(3rd string) which makes it apt and enjoyable for beginners.
