What do you get when you combine opposite quantities?

10 + (-10) = ?

For example:

In this lesson, you will learn the additive inverse by combining opposite quantities.

Absolute Value is a number’s distance from zero.

| -3 | =

Opposite Numbers have the same absolute value.

| 3 | =

Two numbers that can be added together to get zero are called an Additive Inverse.

-15 + 15 =
