8

The less than sign I believe that you are talking about is the minus/subtraction sign? The addition sign, +, is the opposite of the subtraction sign :)

No, the opposite of -6 would be 6, which is larger.

-19?

The purpose of finding the opposite of a number is to find its absolute value. This is how much less or greater it is than zero and how much it needs to return to zero.

False. Apart from the fact that there is no such thing as an opposite. If, by opposite, you mean negative (additive inverse), then start with a negative number. The negative of this will be positive, and so greater. If by opposite you mean the reciprocal (multiplicative inverse), start with a positive number less than one or a negative number less than -1.

It depends on what is meant by "opposite". For the additive opposite: x = -x - 38 For the multiplicative opposite: x = 1/x - 38

Assuming that by "opposite" you mean the additive inverse, that is true for positive numbers.

No, the opposite is true.
