What is additive inverse

A number and its additive inverse add up to zero. If a number has no sign, add a "-" in front of it to get its additive inverse. The additive inverse of 5 is -5. The additive inverse of x is -x. If a number has a minus sign, take it away to get its additive inverse. The additive inverse of -10 is 10. The additive inverse of -y is y.

As far as positive numbers are concerned, the additive inverse of a positive number is a negative number with the same magnitude (i.e. the additive inverse of 5 is -5). It would be wrong to simply say that "negative" and "additive inverse" are correct, because the additive inverse of a negative number is a positive number.

The additive inverse of 18 is -18. The additive inverse of any number is the opposite of that number, such that the sum of the original number and the additive inverse is zero.

The additive inverse of x is -(x), so the additive inverse of -45 is -(-45), or 45.
