### 7A.3 Hw question

For part b in 7A.3, wouldn't the answer be negative? The solution manual has it as positive 0.88 mol/l*s but I thought you would have to get ride of the negative on the other side since rate of formation is +delta [P]/delta t.

unique rate is always positive i believe so you do not have to cancel out a negative
