Work Step by Step

To sort the bodies of water from deepest to shallowest, we first take the absolute value of the "average depth" column, and then arrange the numbers from largest to smallest: Pacific Ocean: $|-14,040|=14,040$ feet Indian Ocean $|-12,800|=12,800$ feet Caribbean Sea $|-8,448|=8,448$ feet China Sea $|-4,802|=4,802$ feet Gulf of California $|-2,375|=2,375$ feet
