A steel measuring tape is calibrated at 20 degrees Celsius. A reading of 32.10m is measured when it is used to find the length of a building. If the temperature is 5degrees Celsius, what is the actual length of the building at that temperature?

The coefficient of linear expansion for steel is 12*10^-6
