# What is the additive inverse of the complex number -8 + 3i?

**Solution:**

Given complex number -8 + 3i

If Z = x + iy is a complex number, then its inverse is -Z = -(x + iy).

⇒ -Z = - x - iy

For example, the additive inverse of - 9 - 5i is -(-9 - 5i)

Additive inverse simply means changing the sign of the number and adding it to the original number to get an answer equal to 0.

We just need to change the sign of the imaginary term.

The additive inverse of - 8 + 3i is -(-8 + 3i)

Therefore, the additive inverse is 8 - 3i

## What is the additive inverse of the complex number -8 + 3i?

**Summary:**

The additive inverse of the complex number -8 + 3i is 8 - 3i.
