# Which of the following represents the additive inverse of 12? A. -(-12) B. 12 C. -12 D.

###### Question:

## Answers

The additive inverse of a number is what you add to it to get 0 and in this case that is -12.

Additive inverse of 125 is – 125, option C is correct.

Solution:

Given that , a number is 125

We have to find the additive inverse for the above given number from the above given set of options.

Now, we know that, sum of a number and its additive inverse equals to 0.

So, let us check option by option.

Option A:

Given number is -(-125)

-(-125) ⇒ 125 + ( - ( - 125 ) )

⇒ 125 + 125

⇒ 250 ⇒ wrong option

Option B:

Given number is 125

⇒ 125 + 125 ⇒ 250 ⇒ wrong option

Option C:

Given number is -125

125 + ( - 125 ) ⇒ 125 – 125 ⇒ 0 ⇒ correct option

Hence, additive inverse of 125 is – 125, option C is correct

Correct answer is C. -41

Step-by-step explanation:

Theory:

Number + Additive inverse = 0

Therefore, Addictive inverse of 41 is

Additive inverse + 41 = 0

Additive inverse = -41

Correct answer is C. -41

the correct answer is -12

what are the options?

Step-by-step explanation:

C. -12 that’s the answer

It’s C.-41

mark as brilliant

the correct answer is - 125

Correct C. -12

Step-by-step explanation:

The additive inverse represents the number that would add to 0.If you went down to -12, that is 12 numbers under zero. If you were to add that +12, you would move back up 12 numbers, and that would leave you at the number 0.

Example:

12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

now go back -12

12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

now add a +12

12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

I am not sure if that makes enough since, I'm just trying to show how you can get it on a number line but since there is no actual number line tool, I had to do it that way.

Sorry if I'm wrong but I hope this helps!

Have a good day <3
