If you start at the origin and walk 100 meters right, you go to x = +100 meters

If you start at the origin and walk 100 meters left, you go to x = -100 meters.

In either case you walk 100 meters.

You just take the oppistie number for example if you take -6 and have the opposite if that it would be 6
