Microvolts over degrees-->degrees over microvolts

If I have -72 $$\mu V / degrees C$$... how do I change that to degrees per microvolt? just
-72 $$degrees C / \mu V$$?

Umm....no.

If I earn ten dollars per hour, how many hours do I work per dollar I earn? The answer is that I earn a dollar in one tenth of an hour (= 6 min). I hope this is obvious. So what did I do to change my figure in units of money earned per unit time to time worked per unit money? I took the reciprocal.
