On an given day , juan will break even if he earns as much money as he spends. On day 5 , he records the expression 16+(-16).Dose juan break even? Explain


  1. Answer: Yes, Juan breaks even.

    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.

  2. Answer:

    yes he does break even.

    Step-by-step explanation:


    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.
