well im guessing a? bc of what you said..Sol idk..What exactly IS additive inverse property?

Additive inverse is just a fancy way to say a - a = 0 or given any number (call it a) there is another number (-a) that you can add to a a+ (-a) to get zero.

so is it A? or not? i'm wanting to figure this out by knowing the answer and figuring out how you got it.

which of the answers shows 2 numbers added together that give you zero?

option A is an example of the "identify property of addition" See http://www.khanacademy.org/video/identity-property-of-0?playlist=Developmental+Math+2

Well D does and that's pretty much it
phi
  • phi
Yes, and notice that one of the numbers is 8 and the other is -8 so 8 and -8 are additive inverses. It is a definition, so you have to memorize it.

Watch Khan's video's if this is confusing, it will help it all sink in.
