a group of hikers begin their expedition at the grand canyon at an elevation of 56 feet below sea level at 5:00 am .if they climb 14 vertical feet up each hour until 10:00 am ,what is their new elevation ?

I've shown you how to do this kind of problem. Now it's your turn.
I'll be glad to check your answer. 
56+14= 42

You're on the right track  EXCEPT that they climb 14 feet an hour for 5 hours.
Please try again. 
56 + 14(5)

What is their new elevation?

I think 14

Right. Their new elevation is 14 feet above sea level.

thank you

You're welcome.
