I've been told that 1/Vmax = 3.3738

so Vmax = 0.296

I'm confused about how the answer is 0.296. Could someone explain to me the calculation I need to do to get 0.296

Thanks

If \frac{1}{a} = b then multiply both sides by a: 1 = ab, and then divide both sides by b: a = \frac{1}{b}

So \frac{1}{v_m} = 3.3738 \Rightarrow v_m = \frac{1}{3.3738}.
