**Additive Inverse of 17**= -

**17**

**additive inverse of 17**is

**17**, because you add the minus and then remove it again.

Just so, what is the additive inverse of 28?

**Additive Inverse of 28** = -**28** This also means that the double **additive inverse of 28** is **28**, because you add the minus and then remove it again.

Secondly, what is the additive inverse of 16? The **additive inverse of 16** is -**16**.

Considering this, what is the additive inverse of 18?

Additive Inverse of 18 = -18 Since the additive inverse of 18 is -18, additive inverse is also known as the **opposite** number.

What is additive inverse?

In mathematics, the **additive inverse** of a number a is the number that, when added to a, yields zero. The **additive inverse** is **defined** as its **inverse** element under the binary operation of addition (see the discussion below), which allows a broad generalization to mathematical objects other than numbers.
