### Unique rate law Question 15.5(A)

[From the equation -(1/b)*(deltaA/deltaT)]
When we are doing question 15.5(a) and finding the rate of consumption, do we have to state rate of consumption and leave it as a positive answer, or can we leave it as a negative rate to show that it is being consumed?
