# Opposite Integers

Opposite numbers have the same distance from 0 but they are on the other side of the number lines.

An integer is a number without a decimal or fractional form. This kind of number may be positive, negative, or 0. Opposite integers are considered negative or positive forms of a number.

The only integer that is its opposite is zero. It means the opposite of 0 is 0.

## A step-by-step** guide to making opposite Integers**

**Step 1**: Identify whether the number is negative or positive.

**Step 2**: If the number is positive, the opposite side is negative and it is on the left side of zero.

**Step 3**: If the number is negative, the opposite side is positive and it is on the right side of zero.

**Opposite Integers – Examples 1:**

What is the opposite of \(-4\)? Graph it on the number line.

4 is negative so the opposite of \(-4\) will be on the right side of 0. Therefore, the opposite of \(-4\) is 4.

**Solutions:**

4 is negative so the opposite of \(-4\) will be on the right side of 0. Therefore, the opposite of \(-4\) is 4.

**Opposite Integers – Examples 2:**

What is the opposite of 8? Graph it on the number line.

**Solutions:**

8 is positive so the opposite of 8 will be on the left side of 0. Therefore, the opposite of 8 is \(-8\).
