    W= F*displacement*cos(angle of displacement) W= 50N * 8m * cos(30) W= 50N * 8m * 0.86603 W=346.4 J

    yea, because you cant have a negative distance (displacement is simply a distance). They assigned -4 and 4 to throw you off. They are just using a Cartesian coordinate system and didn't set their reference point to 0
