# What Is a Zero Pair in Algebra?

October 5, 2022

A zero pair is a set of two numbers that add up to zero. A null pair definition must specify that the two numbers must contain one positive and one negative number.

## How do you explain zero pairs?

A zero pair is a pair of numbers that add up to zero. In other words, they cancel each other out.

## Which of the following is an example of a zero pair?

A red and a blue tile add up to zero. This is called a null pair. Because null pairs have a value of zero, they do not affect the value of other tile groups.

## Is a pair of number whose sum is zero?

The number 0 is called additive identity because when you add it to a number, you get the same number. For example 4 + 0 = 4. Any two numbers whose sum is zero, like 3 and -3, because 3 + (-3) = 0.

## What is the zero principle in math?

According to the principle of zero products, when two factors are multiplied and the result is zero, at least one of them is zero. Therefore either 5=0 5 = 0 or y=0 y = 0 . In this case we know that 5 5 is not zero, so y y must be zero. We can check this with algebra.

## What is a pair in math?

A set of two numbers or objects that are related in some way is called a pair. The pair and is usually denoted ( , ) and is generally considered ordered, making it a 2-tuple. Couples may also be referred to as brothers or twins.

## How are opposite numbers and zero pairs related?

Remember that each member of a pair of numbers like -3 and 3 is called the opposite of the other number. The pairs are also called “zero pairs” because their sum is zero. Example: You scored 9 points in a game.

## What is another name for a zero sum pair?

A zero-sum game is also known as a strictly competitive game, while non-zero-sum games can be either competitive or non-competitive. Zero-sum games are most commonly solved using the minimax theorem, which is closely related to linear programming duality, or Nash equilibrium.

## What is the sum of 0?

Zero is called the identity element for the addition of rational numbers. So the sum of 0 and any rational number is the number itself.

## Which of the following sum is 0?

Integers consist of positive and negative numbers. So the sum of any positive integer and its negative integer equals 0.
