What is the Additive Inverse Property? Definition and Examples
The additive inverse property states that the sum of a number and its opposite is equal to zero. For example, the sum of 8 and -8 is equal to zero.
8 + -8 = 0
The additive inverse property is also called inverse property of addition
In general, the inverse property of addition states that for every real number n, there exist an additive inverse -n such that n + (-n) = 0

1 + -1 = 0
2/3 + -2/3 = 0
y + -y = 0
x + -x = 0
7 + -7 = 0
x/y + -x/y = 0
