98 feet higher

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that:

Deepest point of The Channel Tunnel, England = 250 feet below sea level

Deepest point of The Eurasia Tunnel, Turkey = 348 feet below sea level

To find:

How much higher is the deepest point in the Channel Tunnel than the deepest point in the Eurasia Tunnel ?

Solution:

We are given the deepest point of two different tunnels from a single point of reference.

The same point of reference is the sea level.

Therefore to find the height for which the deepest point of Channel Tunnel is higher than that of Eurasia Tunnel, we can simply subtract both the given values to find the answer.

Therefore, the answer is = 348 – 250 = 98 feet
