2A hike starts at an elevation 30 meters below sea level and ends at a point 9500 meters higher than the starting point. How high would you be at the end of the hike?
meters
Solution
The starting point is 30 meters below sea level, or -30.
The ending point is 9500 meters higher than the starting point.

Equation:
- 30 + 9500

Solve.

1At sunrise, the outside temperature was 1° below zero. By lunch time, the temperature rose by 17° and then fell by 4° by night. What was the temperature at the end of the day?
°
Solution
The starting temperature is 1° below zero, or -1°.
Later, the temperature rose, or went up, by 17°.
Then, the temperature fell, or went down, by 4°.

Equation:
-1° + 17° - 4°
