A flagpole has a height of
yards. It will be supported by three cables, each of which is attached to the flagpole at a point
yards below the top of the pole and attached to the ground at a point that is
yards from the base of the pole. Find the total number of yards of cable that will be required.
So this flagpole is almost 4 miles high? WOW
And the cables are attached almost 2 miles from the base of this massive flagpole??
Check your typing, I bet you dropped a decimal point or something.
