. Find the additive inverse of 5


Best Answer

Explanation:

Find the additive inverse of 5 in this question.

First, learn about additive inverse, and then move on to solving this problem.

If there is a number a, then the additive inverse of that number is the number that, when added to a produces zero.

We have the specified number 5 if we extend this concept in the question.

Assume that x is the additive inverse of 5.

Their sum will then equal zero, as defined by the definition.

∴x+5=0

As a result, ⇒x= -5 .

Final Answer:

As a result, the additive inverse of 5 is-5.
