Change in ICE tables

Will the reactants always have a negative when doing the c for your ice tables?

If you are given initial concentrations and all of them are nonzero, calculate the reaction quotient Q.

If Q<K, the reaction moves toward the products, so the ICE table would have +x on the product's side and -x on the reactant's side.

If Q>K, the reaction moves toward the reactants, so the ICE table would have -x on the product's side and -x on the reactant's side.
