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.

Two numbers, which when added together result in zero, are called each other's additive inverse. That is, for two given numbers x and y, if x + y = 0, then y is the additive inverse of x and x is the additive inverse of y.

Change its sign.

The additive inverse of 100 is -100.

The opposite of -|-12| is -12*An integer is any whole number*.:Letter "c" is just an example of absolute value. It has nothing to do with the procedure of finding the additive inverse:.

The additive inverse of -34 is the number you need to add to -34 to get 0 i.e. 34.
