Reciprocal of the number: $\frac{1}{y}$ Reciprocal of the number increased by 2: $\frac{1}{y}+2$

#### Work Step by Step

Part 1: The reciprocal of the number involves dividing the number by 1. Since the number is y, its reciprocal would be $\frac{1}{y}$ Part 2: The reciprocal of the number increased by 2 means that we add 2 to the reciprocal.Therefore, the required expression is $\frac{1}{y}+2$
