          are you asking why some values are negative? In the example you have given the you have specified ordinate dimensions to the left and right of the 0 location. This is why some are positive and some negative. If the 0 location was specified at the left hand edge all dimensions would be positive. In ordinate dimensioning you basically specify a dimensional origin and all subsequent ordinate dimensions are related to that.
