cj,

that's a real good question for which I have no answer. I have observed that the questions will be very clear without such ambiguity:

...how many multiples of 5 are there between.....

..If n is a 2-digit positive integer and is a multiple of 5....

May be some gurus can chime in here to help

Johhny, usually the question stem will specify +ive or -ive.
