#### Prove that the reciprocal of an irrational number is irrational.

**Solution:**

Consider x as an irrational number

Reciprocal of x is 1/x

If 1/x is a non-zero rational number

Then x × 1/x will also be an irrational number.

We know that the product of a non-zero rational number and irrational number is also irrational.

If x × 1/x = 1 is rational number

Our assumption is wrong

So 1/x is also an irrational number.

Therefore, the reciprocal of an irrational number is also an irrational number.
