Monika dove 9 meters below the ocean's surface. She then dove 13 meters deeper. Then she rose 19 and one-fourth meters. What was her position concerning the water's surface (the water surface = 0, minus values = above water level, plus = above water level)?

Correct answer:

x =  -2.75 m

Step-by-step explanation:

a=9 m b=13 m c=1914=19+14=19 4+14=774=19.25 m  x=a+b+c=(9)+(13)+19.25=114=114 m=2.75 m
