### What is the difference between multiplicative inverse and additive inverse?

The multiplicative inverse of a non-zero element, x, in a set, is an element, y, from the set such that x*y = y*x equals the multiplicative identity. The latter is usually denoted by 1 or I and the inverse of x is usually denoted by x-1 or 1/x. y need not be different from x. For example, the multiplicative inverse of 1 is 1, that of -1 is -1. The additive inverse of an element…

### What problems make the answer 38?

OK< SO< there are many problems that make the answer 38. A few examples: p-36= 74 where "p" equals 38. x+(-19) = 19 where "x" equals 38. i + 5783 = 5821 where "i" equals 38. 94 - 56 - x where "x" equals 38. h +3 = 41 where "h" is equal to 38. y3 +19 = 54891 where "y3" equals 54872 where plain "y" would equal 38 (38x38x38 = 54872). And you could…
