$\frac{7}{12}$
Remember, that the product of a number $a$ and its reciprocal is 1. Therefore, the reciprocal of $a$ must be $\frac{1}{a}$ (which is just $a$ flipped), so that $a\times\frac{1}{a}=1$. Therefore, the reciprocal of $\frac{12}{7}$ is $\frac{1}{\frac{12}{7}}=1\times\frac{7}{12}=\frac{7}{12}$. $\frac{12}{7}\times\frac{7}{12}=1$
