Leveling floor

The house i live in has carpet through out & i want to put down hardwood flooring.My problem is that the dining room used to be a carport & it was enclosed before i purchased house & the dining & living room is one open room.
Where the dining room joins the living room it is not level how much i don't know not to noticeable but i can see it with the dining room being the highest point.What is the best way to correct this before i try putting down the hardwood floor.I am going to do this myself with no experience but i am pretty handy about doing things for myself also plywood under carpet.Thanks for any help & advice.

You may want to find a perfectly straight 2x4x10, lay it across the floor from each room with a level on top. Leveling the plank would tell you how much out of kilter the floor is. From there you will know what is needed to bring it up to par. Is there a drop down, or does the floor slant?
