Inverses, like the additive inverse or multiplicative inverses, are important for understanding how to cancel terms when solving for variables in equations and formulas. When a number is added to its additive inverse, the result zero. This is useful for getting rid of terms. When a number is multiplied to its multiplicative inverse, the result is 1. This is useful for getting rid of fractions.
