They are both binary operations. The inverse of adding X to a number is the subtraction of X from the result and, conversely, subtracting Y from a number is the inverse of adding Y to the result.

Is subtraction an identity property?

Subtraction is not an identity property but it does have an identity property. The identity is 0 and each number is its own inverse with respect to subtraction. However, this is effectively the same as the inverse property of addition so there is no real need to define it as a separate property.

Pairs of operations that undo each other?

Inverse operations, or opposite operations, undo one another. Subtraction undoes addition (and vice versa), and division undoes multiplication (and vice versa).

What is done first when you use the order of operations?

The operation is P.E.M.D.A.S., and each letter stands for an operation to use. P - parentheses, E - exponents, M - multiplication, D - division (multiplication and division are equal...so it doesn't matter which direction it is in. This is the same for addition and subtraction), A - addition, S - subtraction. I hope this helped :-)

What does inverse mean?

The inverse is like its opposite. It "undoes" whatever operation you had performed. So if you have a number and you add 5 to it, the inverse would be to subtract 5 from the answer i.e. addition and subtraction are inverses of each other.
