An island has some portion submerged in water. point x on the island is...
Point X is in more depth than the point Y.
We are given that An island has some portion submerged in water.
Point X on the island is at distance from the surface of the sea=feet
Point Y on the island is at distance from the surface of the sea=feet
We know if we move from left to right on the left of zero on number line then the value decreases.
We are given that
The distance of point X from the surface of the sea=
The distance of point Y from the surface of the sea=
The two distance of two points measure from the surface of the sea. It means the two points is present in water.
When we go in water then the distance measure in negative. Therefore, the point is more deepest than the point Y.
Hence, we can say point X is in more depth than the point Y in the sea.
Point Y is closer to the surface than point X! Hope this helps.
