    we conclude that the correct option is the second one, the opposite of a positive number is a negative number (of equal absolute value).

    Which of the following best describes the opposite of a positive number?

    For any real number X, we define the opposite of X as a number Y such that:
    X + Y = 0
    Solving for Y (by subtracting X in both sides)
    X + Y – X = 0 – X
    Y = -X
    Then if X represents a positive number, the opposite of a positive number is Y = -X a negative number.
    From that, we conclude that the correct option is the second one, the opposite of a positive number is a negative number (of equal absolute value).
