Answer:Zero

Step-by-step explananation:An inverse is the opposite of another number, so if you add them together it would equal zero.

Here are a few examples.

5+-5=0

9+-9=0

150+-150=0

-220+220=0

-476+476=0

The inverse is simply the originall number, but on the opposite side of the number line. Meaning you add or take away the negative sign, depending on the original number.

Hope I explained well:)Answer:The word “inverse” in the question is ambiguous, since x usually has inverses under both addition and multiplication. … If the question is asking about the additive inverse (opposite), then the sum is always 0 for any x . So the sum takes its maximum value for any x .
