Multiplicative inverse makes the number 1 so it multiplies by 1 which cancels the numberExample, 1/3x=10. to make 1/3 into 1we multiply by its multiplicative integers which is 3/11/3 times 3/1=3/3=11/3x times 3/1=3/1 times 101x=30Additive inverse makes the number 0 to cancel it outso examplex+3=10Add the inverse of 3 to make it 0Inverse of 3 is -33+-3=0so x+3-3=10-3x+0=7x=7Algebra one, semester one, unit one: explain the additive and multiplicative inverse Inverse means the
