Subtraction

adative inverse

An inverse operation reverses an affect of another operation. Addition is the inverse operation of subtraction. So are multiplication and subtraction.

An inverse operation (for some operation) is, in a way, the opposite of another operation. For example, subtraction is the opposite of addition (if you add 7, then subtract 7, the subtraction will "undo" the addition - you get the original number back). Similarly, division is the inverse of multiplication, taking a root is the inverse of calculating a power, and the logarithm is also the inverse of calculating a power (the difference being that taking a root finds the unknown base, while taking the logarithm finds the unknown exponent).
