### Can distance be negative in physics?

No. Distance is never negative, and total distance travelled
doesn't decrease during a trip. The distance from A to B is the
same as the distance from B to A.
Displacement, on the other hand, can be negative, and can
decrease during a trip. The displacement from A to B is the same
magnitude, but opposite sign, as the displacement from B to A.
An example would be if you went from your home to a friend's
house 1 mile to the east. After you reach your friend's house, you
have travelled a distance of 1 mile and your displacement from your
starting position is 1 mile. When you come back home from your
friends house, you travel a distance of 1 more mile. Your total
distance travelled is now 2 miles, but your displacement from your
starting location is zero (because you are back where you
started.)
Distance does not have direction, and is always positive (or
zero).
Displacement has direction, and can be negative, positive, or
zero.

### The distance from your house to your aunt's house is 228 miles you are twice as far from home as you are from your aunt's house How far have you traveled?

The ratio of the distances between me and my house, and me and
my aunt's house is 2:1
⇒ there are 2 + 1 = 3 parts to the distance between my house and
my aunt's house
⇒ each part is worth the distance between the two houses divided
by 3, that is 228 miles ÷ 3 = 76 miles
⇒ I am 2 parts from my house which is 2 x 76 miles = 152
miles
& 1 part from my aunt's house which is 1 x 76 miles = 76
miles
So if I am on my way to visit my aunt, I have travelled 152
miles from my house;
Or if I am on my way home from visiting my aunt, I have
travelled 76 miles from my aunt's house;
