Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the additive inverse, or opposite, of a number a is the number that, when added to a, yields zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Additive 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2option A is an example of the "identify property of addition" See http://www.khanacademy.org/video/identitypropertyof0?playlist=Developmental+Math+2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well D does and that's pretty much it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, 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.
