From sports: we = pos, win = pos, they = neg, lose = neg, good = pos, bad = neg we win = good (pos × pos = pos) we lose = bad (pos × neg = neg) they win = bad (neg × pos = neg) they lose = good (neg × neg = pos)
From friendship: friend = pos, enemy = neg
My friend's friend is my friend (pos × pos = pos)
My friend's enemy is my enemy (pos × neg = neg)
My enemy's friend is my enemy (neg × pos = neg)
My enemy's enemy is my friend (neg× neg = pos)
From life: good = pos, bad = neg
A good thing happening to a good person is good. (pos × pos = pos)

Speed, Distance and Time
Remember the formula triangle
D = distance traveled S = Average speed T = Time taken
You can use the formula triangle in the following way:
If you need to find D, cover up D in the triangle and you get S × T
If you need to find S, cover up S in the triangle and you get
If you need to find T, cover up T in the triangle and you get
