Look at the time at which you posted this question. Can you guess why no one has answered your question?

by the same token, do you expect these volunteer tutors to be up all night ?
Students posting here come from the west to the east coast of the US and Canada, and I have even answered questions from students from Britain, Australia and New Zealand.

As to your question, there is no such number.

The additive inverse of any number changes its sign, the reciprocal leaves the sign alone.
