The Elevation of city (A) is 96 feet Below sea Level; The elevation of city (C) is 24 feet below sea level.

The elevation of city (D) is 1/4 of the elevation of city (C).

 

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)

Nickolas, try drawing a picture of the sea. And put the things you know at their correct depth.

You are told A and C you can put them in.  Then you can think about D

 

Like this only it is not long enough.
