Explaining Additive and Multiplicative
Inverses
Jaya Maria Griesemer
The additive inverse of a number is the number you need to add to a number so it
creates the sum of zero. Example; say you have the number -2 the additive inverse of -2
would be 2 because -2+2=0.
This works with fractions, and decimals too, as long as the sum equals to 0 any number
