Q:
# A mountain's peak is 880 m above sea level while the valley is 139 m below sea level. what is the elevation drop between the top of the mountain and the bottom of the valley?

Accepted Solution

A:

To find the elevation drop between a point above sea level and a point below sea level, you will need to add the absolute values (the distance from zero) to find how far apart they are.

|880| + |-139|=

880 + 139 = 1019 meters

The drop in elevation is 1019 meters.

|880| + |-139|=

880 + 139 = 1019 meters

The drop in elevation is 1019 meters.
