Your Assignment

A submersible is a type of underwater vessel. Suppose a submersible starts at a depth of 40 feet below sea level, represented by –40 feet. The table shows the submersible’s change in depth from one minute to the next.

Time and Depth of Submersible

2:15 p.m. 2:16 p.m. 2:17 p.m. 2:18 p.m.

–40 feet 180 feet lower 175 feet lower 185 feet lower

Answer the questions to find the depth of the submersible after 3 minutes.

Write your answer in the space below.

2. Write and evaluate a subtraction expression to find the depth of the submersible at 2:17 p.m.

Write your answer in the space below.

3. Write and evaluate a subtraction expression to find the depth of the submersible at 2:18 p.m.

Write your answer in the space below.

4. If the submersible dove straight down, what is the distance between the submersible’s starting position at 2:15 and its position at 2:18? Show your work.

Write your answer in the space below.

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:This is minus – number minus- number = minus number counting bkwards but when when we subtract two minus number with another minus it becomes a plus + just between the brackets see question 4 brackets use. The work is using brackets for question 4.
