The answer depends on whether the "opposite" means the multiplicative inverse or the additive inverse.

It's 1000. The absolute value of zero or any positive number is itself, while the absolute value of a negative number is the opposite, or additive inverse.

The opposite of the absolute value of -8 is -8. This assumes that "opposite" refers to additive inverse, although there is no justification for such an assumption.

opposites, additive inverses

The additive opposite is negative 8 (-8). Absolute values are always positive numbers.

No. This is because absolute values are always positive. For example: |2|=2 absolute value Additive inverse means the opposite sign of that number so 2's additive inverse is -2. But sometimes if the number is -2 then the additive inverse equals the absolute value. therefore the answer is sometimes

The answer depends on whether the "opposite" means the multiplicative inverse or the additive inverse.

The additive inverse for a number is its negative value. The sum of an integer and its additive inverse is zero. For the example (5), the additive inverse would be (-5).

The absolute value of a positive number is the number itself. The absolute value of a negative number is the number's opposite (additive inverse).

The opposite of the absolute value of -8 is -8. This assumes that "opposite" refers to additive inverse, although there is no justification for such an assumption.

In Real numbers, each is the additive inverse of the other.

Any number (other than 0), and its additive inverse.

the absolute value

It is the number with the same magnitude (absolute value) and the opposite sign.

One example would be a Galois Field size 4 (ie GF(4)). Here, the elements are {0,1,2,3} and every element is its own additive inverse.
