Example Question #1 : Additive Inverse Property
When is neither positive nor negative?
The additive inverse of is . This means that when is added to the result is zero.
can be written as .
Since zero is the only number that is neither positive nor negative the answer is .
Example Question #2 : Additive Inverse Property
What is the additive inverse of ?
The rule for Additive Inverse Property is .
Using this rule if ,
So the additive inverse is .
Example Question #3 : Additive Inverse Property
Which of the following statements demonstrates the inverse property of addition?
None of the examples in the other responses demonstrates the inverse property of addition.
The inverse property of addition states that for every real number, a number exists, called the additive inverse, such that the number and its inverse have sum 0. Of the statements given, only
demonstrates this property, so it is the correct choice.
Example Question #4 : Additive Inverse Property
What is the additive inverse of 30?
The question asks us what number added with 30 will equal zero. Write the mathematical equation that represents this scenario.
Subtract 30 from both sides.
Example Question #5 : Additive Inverse Property
Which of the following displays the additive inverse property?
The additive inverse property is when two numbers added together equal zero. So,
displays that property.
