Step 1

1 of 4To find the absolute distance of the landmarks against the sea level, find the absolute value of each elevation mark. Find the absolute value of $-282$ $\text{ft}$ to find the distance of the death valley from sea level:

$\begin{aligned} |-282|&=282 \\ \end{aligned}$

Hence, the death valley is $282\text{ ft}$ away from the sea level.
