# Add and Subtract Distance

Sophie and Jack are hiking on the same trail.

Sophie is at an elevation of $-17\frac{1}{2}$ ft.

Jack is at an elevation of $19\frac{2}{3}$ ft.

- How much greater is Jack’s elevation than Sophie’s?

## Hint:

Try sketching a number line and showing the two elevations. How can you find the difference between the elevations?
