What number is equal to its opposite?

The number that is its own "additive inverse" is zero. (x + 0 = x - 0)For the multiplicative inverse (1/x), the number 1 is its own inverse (also -1). (x times 1 = x/1)x = 1/x is only true where x = 1 or x = (-1)

Is the absolute value of a positive integer a negative integer?
