Divergence theorem - confused over here

Okay so I found two solved examples (attached).

The first one says:
F (x, y, z) = (y, −x, z) and P is the bottom part of the surface: z^(x^2+y^2), x^2+y^2<2. Find the flux.

The second one says: F(x,y,z) = (z*e^(y^2), x^2+1, z). P is bottom part of the spherical cap: x^2+y^2+(z-5)^2=25, z>8 Find the flux.

But they are solved differently. The first one is oriented with (0,0,1) and second one with (0,0,-1). Also the formula is different. And now I'm confused why?
