If you multiply by -1 it is in reversed order. Then if you want to rescale it to the same 1-10 range you would simply need to add 11, so -10 becomes 1, -1 becomes 10, etc. So the code:

So, would you agree that a different (and perhaps simpler) compute order would be:

COMPUTE new= 11-old

Is it the same order as you suggested?
