Please help me on this question. Thanks!
One pole measured 1.35m and the smaller pole measured 0.83m. They needed to be tied together. They were attached by overlapping the ends and tying them together. The length of the overlap was 12cm. What is the total length of the new pole. Hint: remember 100cm= 1m
Also me teacher told me to use her strategy and draw a picture to help me figure this out. How would i draw this picture?

Draw two lines, one overlapping the other a little.









12 cm = 0.12 m
1.36 + 0.83  0.12 = ?

so the answer would be 2.07 m or cm
