Mount Everest is the highest point on Earth. It is 29,029 ft above sea level. The lowest known point on Earth is Challenger Deep. It is 36,201 ft below sea level. This means that any point on earth is greater than or equal to (-)36,201 ft below sea level and less than or equal to 29,029 ft below sea level. The mathematical sentence that represents any point of Earth is -36,201 ≤ x ≤ 29,029. x is equal to any point on Earth. This mathematical sentence is an inequality. If this was changed to an equation, that would mean that any point on Earth is either -36,201 ft under ground or 29,029 ft in the air. One problem this causes is that being 36,201 ft under ground or 29,029 ft in the air means extreme conditions. The air on top of Mount Everest is very thin and the weather is…show more content…
Without special equipment, people wouldn’t be able to survive. The same applies to Challenger Deep. The temperature at Challenger Deep is roughly 32°F, it’s literary freezing. The hydrostatic pressure at the bottom of Challenger Deep is about 16,000 pounds per square inch. Many health problems for humans and animals would occur if any point on Earth was either 36,201 ft under ground or 29,029 ft in the air. Another problem(or benefit, depending on how you at look it), is that if every point on Earth is either 29,029 ft above sea level or (-)36,201 ft below sea level there would be no point of going to Mount Everest or Challenger Deep. They would no longer be ‘special’ or a tourist worthy place. Lot’s of people go certain places because of natural landforms that have form there. Mount Everest and Challenger Deep are special compared to the rest of the world. They are considered things that other parts of the world aren’t. If everywhere was the same, why would you take the time/money/resources to
