solve A Flag Pole Has A Height Of 16 Yards. It Will Be Supported By Three Cables, Each Of Which Is Attached To The Flagpole At A Point 4 Yards Below The Top Of The Pole And Attached To The Ground At A Pole. Find the total number of feet of cable that will be required

Thinking Mathematically 
bobpursley,
It would depend on the distance from the cable ground attachments to the near top of the pole.
