# A plane is flying at the height of 5000 m above the sea level. At a particular point, it is exactly above a submarine floating 1200 m below the sea level. What is the vertical distance between them?

**Solution:**

We will use the concept of integers here.

Height of the plane above the sea level = 5000 m

Depth of submarine below the sea level = -1200 m

Let us find the difference between the above two.

Distance between plane and submarine = 5000 m - (-1200 m)

= 5000 m + 1200 m

= 6200 m

Hence, the vertical distance is 6200 m.
