Thanks Chris, That is a really neat method! Here is another method.

Any number can be put over 1. (If you divide any number by 1 its value does not change) So

$$\\\frac{0.00365747}{1}=\frac{1}{x}\\\\

\mbox{Now you can turn both sides upside down (take the reciprocals)}\\\\

\frac{1}{0.00365747}=\frac{x}{1}\\\\

x=\frac{1}{0.00365747}\\\\$$

$${\frac{{\mathtt{1}}}{{\mathtt{0.003\: \!657\: \!47}}}} = {\mathtt{273.413\: \!042\: \!348\: \!946\: \!129\: \!4}}$$

I used the divide by sign to do this.
