Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Look at the figure above. Think of ground level as being zero on a vertical (up and down) number line. Anything above ground is a positive number. Anything below ground is a negative number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The same is true fro sea level. Sea level is zero on a vertical number line. The sail of a boat that is 20 ft above sea level is represented by 20 ft. A scuba diver who dives to a depth of 38 ft below sea level is at 38 ft.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can also use positive and negative amounts to represent money. Money you have is positive. Money you owe is negative. For example, in one pocket you have $5. In your other pocket you have $7. In your piggy bank you have $12. You owe your friend $3. How much total money do you really have? Add all the amounts, but call the amounts you own positive and the amount you owe negative. Amounts you have: $5, $7, $12 Amount you owe: $3 Now add all the amounts (being careful with positive and negative signs): $5 + $7 + $12 + ($3) = $5 + $7 + $12  $3 = $24  $3 = $21
