the number-a number=?

56

The purpose of finding the opposite of a number is to find its absolute value. This is how much less or greater it is than zero and how much it needs to return to zero.

No, the opposite of -6 would be 6, which is larger.

-19?

False. Apart from the fact that there is no such thing as an opposite. If, by opposite, you mean negative (additive inverse), then start with a negative number. The negative of this will be positive, and so greater. If by opposite you mean the reciprocal (multiplicative inverse), start with a positive number less than one or a negative number less than -1.

The opposite of less than or equal to is greater than or equal.And also:The opposite of greater than or equal to is less than or equal.

It depends on what is meant by "opposite". For the additive opposite: x = -x - 38 For the multiplicative opposite: x = 1/x - 38

Yes, if the number is less than '1'.Just the opposite, if the number is greater than '1'.

Assuming that by "opposite" you mean the additive inverse, that is true for positive numbers.

No, the opposite is true.

fourteen less than three fourths of a number is negative eight find the number

I believe that, it is only possible when you're talking about the additive inverse of a number. For example: 1+(-1)=0 tHE POINT IS (-1),THE OPPOSSITE IS LESS THAN 1.

the number 8 is 16 more than its opposite

Its square root is less than 9, but it is not evenly divisible by any number less than 9, other than 1, so it is a prime number

32

8

11

14 of them.

6 and 28

The less than sign I believe that you are talking about is the minus/subtraction sign? The addition sign, +, is the opposite of the subtraction sign :)

No matter the conditions, you will not be able to find a number that is simultaneously more than 20 and less than 5.

9

x = 11

It means subtract 5 from 8 or find the number that is 5 less than 8
