*opposite*of a number is its additive inverse. I do not see the term*opposite*used very frequently in this sense in English, although this is the proper term in French (l'opposé).

For example, the opposite (or additive inverse) of 4 is -4.

You can check the validity by adding the two numbers together. Any number added to its opposite should give zero.

Since 4+(-4)=0, we can safely say that the opposite of 4 is -4.

With the definition above, you should be able to handle the question. Post if you need more information.
