The multiplicative inverse of -3 is -(1/3) or negative one-third. The multiplicative inverse of a number is the number that you multiply it by to get a result of 1 (the multiplicative identity). So, since -3 times -(1/3) is 1, -(1/3) is the multiplicative inverse of -3. Similarly, +3 is the ADDITIVE inverse of -3. The additive inverse of a number is the number you add to it to get a result of 0 (the additive identity). So, since -3 + (+3) = 0, +3 is the additive inverse of -3. The original answer given here was that the multiplicative inverse of -3 is +3, which is flat incorrect.

No, it is not. 3/5 is rational and its multiplicative inverse is 5/3 which is not an integer.

The additive inverse is the inverse under addition; the multiplicative inverse is the inverse under multiplication. For example, the additive inverse of any real or complex number is its negative: the inverse of 3 is -3 and vice versa. The multiplicative inverse of a number other than 0 (which has no such inverse) is its reciprocal: the inverse of 2 is 1/2, and vice versa. Adding a number and its additive inverse gives the additive identity, 0. Multiplying a number by its multiplicative inverse gives the multiplicative identity, 1.

The multiplicative inverse of a number a is a number b such that axb=1 If we look at (3-4i)/(5+2i), we see that we can multiply that by its reciprocal and the product is one. So (5+2i)/(3-4i) is the multiplicative inverse of (3-4i)/(5+2i)

3 and a half = 7/2 so its multiplicative inverse is 2/7.

Flip them upside down. The multiplicative inverse of 2/3 is 3/2
