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.
