what is additive inverse?

 

Dear Student!

The additive inverse of the number, a = – a

Additive inverse of 5 = – 5

The additive inverse of the number, – a = –(– a) = a

Additive inverse of  – 5 = – (– 5) = 5

Cheers!

The number you add to another number to get zero. The negative of a number.

Example:
The additive inverse of -5 is 5, because -5 + 5 = 0.
Also the additive inverse of 5 is -5.
