Reaction Rates

I know that even if a reactant is decreasing, we should write the rate as positive. Why do we want to work with positive reaction rates?

I believe we write the rate as positive because products are being formed meaning the reaction is proceeding forward.

I think that since its moving forward creating products, is why its positive.
