### Grade 3 - Mathematics2.9 Multiplication and Division as Inverse Operations

 An inverse operation reverses another operation. Addition and subtraction are inverses of each other. Example: The addition fact 9 + 5 = 14 can be written as subtraction fact as 14 - 5 = 9 or 14 - 9 = 5 Similarly, multiplication and division are inverses of each other. Example: The multiplication fact 11 × 5 = 55 can be written as division fact as 55 ÷ 5 = 11 or 55 ÷ 11 = 5 Directions: Answer the following questions. Also write at least ten examples for multiplication and division as inverse operations.
 Q 1: 6 x 11 = 66. What is the inverse operation?11 x 6 = 666 ÷ 66 = 1166 ÷ 6 = 11 Q 2: 7 x 8 = 56. What is the inverse operation?56 ÷ 7 = 556 ÷ 7 = 88 ÷ 7 = 1 Q 3: 49 ÷ 7 = 7. What is the inverse operation?7 ÷ 7 = 497 x 7 = 4949 ÷ 8 = 7 Q 4: 5 x 8 = 40. What is the inverse operation?40 ÷ 5 = 88 x 5 = 4040 ÷ 5 = 4 Q 5: 54 ÷ 9 = 6. What is the inverse operation?54 x 9 = 654 ÷ 6 = 99 x 6 = 54 Q 6: 48 ÷ 6 = 8. What is the inverse operation?6 x 6 = 368 x 8 = 648 x 6 = 48 Q 7: 36 ÷ 6 = 6. What is the inverse operation?6 x 7 = 426 x 6 = 367 x 6 = 42 Q 8: 4 x 5 = 20. What is the inverse operation?20 ÷ 10 = 220 ÷ 5 = 45 ÷ 4 = 20 Question 9: This question is available to subscribers only!
