Maybe this is something that's well known but I'd never heard of before, or maybe it's simply incorrect, but is negative i equal to the reciprocal of i?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

-i = 1/i

My reasoning being that multiplying both sides of the equation gives 1.

LHS: -i * i = -(-1) = 1

RHS: i/i = 1

Please help, it's been bugging me and google didn't give any answers
