What is inverse operation - Definition and Meaning

Inverse Operation :

Inverse operations are done to reverse and get back the initial value from the derived value. The best pair of inverse operations are Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. Say, if 23 is initial value and is multiplied by 10 to derive 230. Now we can use divide 230 by 10 to get back the initial value of 23. Thus, the division is the inverse operation performed here.


Example :

Using Addition and Subtraction Let us consider the addition of two numbers. 3 + 6 = 9 Now subtract 6 from 9. 9 – 6 = 3 Here, we got back the initial value 3 Using Multiplication and Division Lets us consider the multiplication of two numbers. 7 x 3 = 21 Now divide the 21 by 3. 21/3 = 7 Here, we got back the initial value 7.
