    Answer:

    The answer is A, -415 meters.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    All right, so the key words we need here are -300, descends, and 115.

    Descends means go lower, or in this case, subtract.

    We are already at -300 and we descend 115, so we are going to subtract.

    Subtracting a number is the same as adding the negative of that number.

    -300 + -115 = -415

    The answer is A, -415 meters.

    Hope this helps, please mark brainliest if possible. 🙂
