### Introduction

Fraction is a method for representing the parts of a whole number. An orange isdivided into two parts then the first part of orange is half of the whole orange and represented by $\frac{1}{2}$ of the orange, $\frac{1}{2}$ is in fraction and called fractional number. The upper part of the fraction is called numerator and lower part of the fraction iscalled denominator. In the fraction,$\frac{a}{b},$a is its numerator and b is denominator. Reciprocal of a fraction is obtained on reversing its order. Therefore, reciprocal of $\frac{a}{b}$ is $\frac{b}{a}$and product of a fraction with its reciprocal $=\frac{a}{b}\times \frac{b}{a}=1$                 i.e. $\frac{24}{16}\times \frac{16}{24}=1$
