The projections on the coordinate axis of the elastic force and displacement are opposite in sign.

The projections on the coordinate axis of the elastic force and displacement are opposite in sign. How is this taken into account in the formula for Hooke’s law?

The sign “-” in the formula of the shown projection of the elastic force vector and the vector of displacement of the free end of the spring are opposite in sign.
