Negative k value

For 7B.9 part a in the 7th edition, I got that k is -0.17, but the answer key gives it without the negative. Does k always have to be positive, and if so, do I just drop the negative sign and keep the numerical value the same?

Re: K'

k' is the rate constant for the reverse reaction. It'll probably be used with the equation K=k/k', where equilibrium constant is the ratio of kforward over kreverse.

I think so, since the key concept is that strong acids lose H + easily, and weaker bonds lead to more acidity.
