    Hmm, if by delta s you mean the change in distance, then it can be negative. In this sense, the sign is the indicator of direction, which is backwards.

    Then say so! Your post can be interpreted in many ways. According to the wiki, the delta is a positive number: "The phrase "as x approaches c" then indicates that we refer to values of x whose distance from c is less than some positive number δ (the lower case Greek letter delta)"
