Problem: 01 A submarine is positioned 1300m below sea level. If it ascends 450m, what is its new position?
The initial position of the Submarine is 1300m below sea level i.e -1300m
( Negative sign denote,” position below sea level “)
Now Submarine ascends 450m (move 450m upward) i.e +450 m
(Positive sign denotes, “Upward movement of the submarine )
∴ The new position of Submarine = -1300 + 450 = -850m
Now, It is located 850m below the sea level
