    The elevation of a sunken ship is -120 feet. Your elevation is 5/8 of the ship's elevation. What is your elevation?

    The question is basically asking "What is 5/8 times -120? "Well, 1/8 of -120 is going to be equivalent to -120 ÷ 8.-120 ÷ 8=-15,5/8 of -120 is just going to be 5 eighths.-15 × 5=-75 feet
