Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a quick question for you guys.

What is it called when you switch the signs of the equation to their opposite?

For example, does 10 + 6 = 16 invert to 10 - 6 = 4 Is this additive inverse?

Or, does 14 x 7 = 98 invert to 14 / 7 = 2 Multiplicative inverse?

Thanks in advance.
