we use it in math. it is called inverse operation
Definition of Inverse OperationTwo operations are said to be Inverse to each other if one operation undoes the effect of the other operation.More about Inverse OperationAddition and subtraction are inverse operations of each other.Multiplication and division are inverse operations of each other.Examples of Inverse OperationThe inverse operation of "10 + 9 = 19" is "19 - 9 = 10", or vice-versa.The inverse operation of "7 Ã— 9 = 63" is "63 Ã· 9 = 7", or vice-versa.Solved Example on Inverse OperationQ. The inverse operation for 14 Ã— 4 = 56. A. 56 Ã· 4 = 14
We use it in order to find the variable
An inverse operation reverses an affect of another operation. Addition is the inverse operation of subtraction. So are multiplication and subtraction.
Just apply the inverse operation to your answer. If your answer was correct, and you apply the inverse operation correctly, then you'll end up with the numbers you started with ... the numbers in the original problem. (If it wasn't, or you don't, then you won't.)
Informally, many people would call the opposites. But the correct math term is inverse operations. Addition is the inverse operation of subtraction and multiplication if the inverse operation of division.
Square root is the inverse operation of a square.
The inverse operation of addition is subtraction. The inverse multiplication by a number other than 0 is division. Multiplication by 0 does not have an inverse operation.
3020 is a number, not an operation. A number cannot have an inverse operation.
"opposite" operation. The inverse of subtraction is addition; the inverse operation of multiplication is division.
Addition is the inverse operation of subtraction and multiplication is the inverse operation of division. The word inverse means "opposite".
