This sounds a little like your homework...I hope its not as you should learn to do this yourself.  You just have to see if there are two numbers that are inverses of each other, since this is the only way they can add up to zero.  e.g. The number you are looking for times negative 1
``````<?php

function inverseExists(\$int_array){
foreach(\$int_array as \$value){
if(in_array(\$value*(-1), \$int_array)) return true;
}
return false;
}
\$my_array = array(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, -6);
if(inverseExists(\$my_array)) echo 'yes!';
else echo 'no!';

?>
``````
