for any reaction aA --> bB + cC, the rate based on the concentration of reactants is negative (-1/a * d[A]/dt) because the concentration of reactants decreases over time as products are formed. In the reverse reaction, A becomes a product and thus its rate is positive because its concentration increases as more and more of it is formed over time.
