6, 9, 123, –76, –85, 1000.

Answer :

Additive inverse property:


Case 1: If x is positive number, x+(-x)=0. So, (-x) is called as additive inverse of x.


Case 2: If x is negative number, -x+(-(-x))=0. So, (x) is called as additive inverse of x.


According to the above property,


The additive inverse of 6 is (-6).


The additive inverse of 9 is (-9).


The additive inverse of 123 is
