Since I saw there were a few people asking about this i thought i would explain.

the number is the difference in rank between the produced item and the lowest rank of any of the components.

for instance, if you compound a rank 6 and a rank 8 item to product a rank 10 item...this would be +4 (hence 10 - 6) since the result gained 4 ranks up.

for primary alchemy, +4 is the most ranks a compound can gain without alchemy books, thus making it the hardest to produce. compounds with lower or negative numbers are more common than items with +3/+4 or higher.
