Unlike popular American sports (i.e. football, Baseball, Basketball), most soccer leagues abroad have varying levels. For example, in England the top league is called the Premiership. As a result, teams that do poorly in a season, drop down to a lower division (or "get relegated") while teams that perform well in a lower league move to a higher league (or "get promoted.")

What is the answer to this question of if the relegation changed from -100 feet to 600 feet what is the total elevation change?

The way you typed the question, it has no answer. I'm thinking that you were watching TV or talking on the phone when you wrote the question, and instead of writing 'elevation' the first time, you wrote 'relegation' instead. The total elevation change is (the elevation when you finish) minus (the elevation when you start). In this situation, that's (600) - (-100) = 700 feet .
