Example: Find the number to be multiplied (-6)-1, so as to get 7-1as the product?

Solution: Let x be the number to be multiplied to (-6)-1 so that the product equals 7-1.
Therefore (-6)-1 * x = 7-1.
-(1/6) * x = 1/7 (Since a-1 = 1/a)
Multiplying both sides with -6 we get,
-6 * -(1/6) * x = -6 * (1/7)
Therefore x = -6/7

Verification: Substitute x value in above we get,
-(1/6) * -6/7 = 1/7 = RHS.
Therefore LHS=RHS.
