addtion with sloped and dipped floor

I recently purchased a 1950's home with a 1972 addition.

the floor on the new additon was slightly lower than on the original house but instead of putting a step they let the floor slope over the first ten feet. It starts with a big dip and then goes a bit back up. it is about 3" lower in the middle than in one corner and the other corner is about 1 3/4 lower than the original house

What are my options?

We were thinking about just getting rid of the dip.

The floor is solid underneath and it doesn't look like it sagged they just didn't line up the additon very well.

assuming there has been no sag, I would probably lay sleepers and new subfloor. Just did this in my daughter's house where they had an enclosed porch with a sloped floor. Directly on top of existing subfloor we laid sleepers (2x4 in this case) ripped to correct heights, then new 3/4 T&G subfloor. In the several places where there was a dip we put shims under the sleeper to keep everything level.
