**Object moving towards or away from "origin"**

## Homework Statement

I just want to confirm that I got this right:

Given a s(t) relation of an object.

The object moves along a straight line.

At some time t, s(t) will tell me if the object is to the left or to the right of the origin.

If s(t) is +:

if if v(t) is +, then it is moving away from the origin.

if v(t) is -, then it is moving back towards the origin.

If s(t) is -:

if v(t) is -, it is moving away.

if v(t) is +, it is moving towards.
