@anke just a "ve"

The entire thing is shorthand for "positive" (and the implied "-ve" exists too,,)

@g1comics
Oh.
But "+" already means "positive", and "+" is not pronounced "positi"?
I'm confused.

@anke I'd use it in my old physics/chemistry notes. I guess it avoids confusion with addition, or with a lowercase t, or for folks who use + as & or something idk
