Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0negative inverse eg 5 is +5, positive inverse eg 2 is 2 and multiplicative inverse eg 7 is 1/7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think negative inverse is 5 >1/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so is the positive inverse the same as the multiplicative inverse?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'm a little rusty on these definitions. does anyone else have any input?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think this is nonstandard terminology "negative inverse" but my guess would be "negative reciprocal" \[m, \frac{1}{m}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That is what my teacher taught us.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then again i could be totally wrong. because later the question says "multiplicative inverse" so maybe it is what zed wrote. is this the whole question?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you have an operations \[\oplus\] with identity \[e\] then the inverse of an element \[x\] is the unique element \[x'\] with \[x\oplus x'=x'\oplus x=e\] there is no such thing as a "negative inverse"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look at that. I think we just have different kinds of terminologies. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is a "negative reciprocal" but not a "negative inverse" the more i think about it, the less sense it makes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which do you think is proper "negative inverse" or "negative reciprocal"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0interesting satellite. i seem to be getting more confused as well. i don't like the words

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'll just ask my teacher if negative reciprocal is the same as negative inverse. If it is, I would chose the term negative reciprocal. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i was able to find http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiplicative_inverse which interchanged inverse and reciprocal

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but that was only for multiplicative inverse not the others

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is "additive inverse" multiplicative inverse and then something totally different negative correlation inverse correlation but no "negative inverse"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes even wiki hasn't heard of "negative inverse' maybe your teacher made it up one evening

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Maybe the teacher was talking about the additive inverse, which the additive inverse is the negative . The additive inverse of 3 is 3, and the negative inverse of 3 is the positive 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0never heard of negative or positive inverse. the inverse element postulates of addition and multiplication are additive inverse and multiplicative inverse/reciprocal additive inverse is the opposite of a number such that the sum = 0 a + a or 1/a + 1/a or a + (+a) ... multiplicative inverse such that the product = 1 a * 1/a
