Three people hiked to the top of the hill represented by the following topographic map. Each hiker started at the same elevation but at different locations around the hill. Use this map for questions 4 - 6.

(All of them are at a elevation of 180 meters and the top is 264 meters)

4. What is the difference in elevation for the hikers? Show work below. (HINT: all hikers are at the same elevation to begin with) *
1 point
84 meters
180 meters
264 meters*
444 meters
