Take the  greatest negative value  in the first table

 

Which is it???

 

Hint : remember that   -3  is a greater negative value than - 2

 

Let me know if you get stuck

So does that mean the answer is the " Sunda Trench"?

No....Mariana's Trench

 

It  has the greatest negative value

 

I don't believe that I explained this very well

 

A better   method  is to just take the absolute value  of each negative

 

The one with the greatest absolute value  will be the deepest

 

abs (-11,033)  = 11,033

abs (-8,600) = 8600

abs (-10,882) = 10,882

abs (-7,725) = 7,725

 

Since 11,033  is the greatest absolute value.....the Marianas Trench is the  deepest

 

Hope that helped   !!!
