1. Giakhanh

Step-by-step explanation:

In integers , we use positive integers to represent gain whereas we use negative integers to show loss.

Here, the statement “On day 5 , he records the expression 16+(-16)” indicates that he earned $16 ( represented by 16) and spend$16   ( represented by -16)

And since magnitude of both values are equal as 16, that means he breaks even.

The two integers are a zero pair.

The two integers are opposites of each other.

The sum of the two integers is zero.

The additive inverse of the first integer is the second integer.
