Part A: Write an expression to represent the elevation, in feet, of city D.
Part B: Solve the expression and explain why the answer is negative or positive.
Please explain both parts Thankyou so much!
I will assume you mean the elevation in relation to sea level....
I do not know why they gave you City A stats....sometimes Q's give information to mislead ya or to make sure you know what you are doing....
Part A Dlevel = 1/4 Clevel
= 1/4 (-24) = -6 ft which is the same as saying = 6 ft BELOW sea level (this is Part B)
