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?

Sure. It just depends on the perspective of k.
If you have a reaction and the k you're given is "rate of production of A", it's gonna be negative, because you're losing A.
