Dear English teachers:
I am trying to think of simple expressions that can describe a following situation.
Let's suppose I am describing a chemical reaction. My outcome variables is 'C'. I have two effectors, 'A' and 'B'. I found 'A' increases 'C' whereas 'B' decrease 'C'.
So I wanted to say something simple like "A and B work in the opposite direction". However, "work in the opposite direction" does not seem right. I can't think of anything else. Would anybody have suggestions?
