    Answer: altitude at starting point is -11ft or 11ft below sea level

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Equation for this situation will be

    A = Ag – 11

    A = actual altitude

    Ag = altitude gained.

    At starting point, altitude gained is zero, therefore;

    A = 0 – 11

    A = -11ft
