To find how much lower the shore of the Dead Sea is from Death Valley, subtract the Dead Sea’s lower elevation from Death Valley’s higher elevation.
To subtract, add the opposite. Add the integers.
−282 − (−1, 371) = −282 + 1, 371 = 1, 089
The Dead Sea at the Israel-Jordan border is 1,089 feet lower than Death Valley.
