# What is the additive inverse of the complex number 13 - 2i?

**Solution:**

Given a complex number 13 - 2i

The additive inverse of any number is an identity which when added to the number results in a zero.

For example, the additive inverse of 10 will be -10.

The additive inverse of -7/9 will be +7/9.

The additive inverse of -2/5 will be +2/5.

The additive inverse of a complex conjugate number 13 - 2i will be -(13 - 2i)

= -13 + 2i.

When the two are added the result is zero

13 - 2i - 13 + 2i = 0

For example, the additive inverse of -5 + 3i is +5 - 3i

## What is the additive inverse of the complex number 13 - 2i?

**Summary:**

The additive inverse of the complex number 13 - 2i is -13 + 2i.
