Default Trade question

When selling, we check table B "Selling Goods". At the bottom, the tech level (TL) effect =

10% x Source TL minus Market TL

Taken as written, it mathematically means ((0.1 x STL) - MTL). But, that will almost always be a negative number. So, that can't be right. Plus, it doesn't tell us what to do with it.

The best reading I can think of is 0.1 x (STL-MTL). But, then, what do we do with it? 10% of SLT 10 - MTL 5 is 0.5, or 50%. Is that applied to the whole thing? If so, as a multiplier, or as an addend?

My guess is this comes from something historical. But, with my limited knowledge of the games history, I don't know what it means.
