On Friday I posted this puzzle……There are 2 flagpoles that are each 100 foot high. A rope that is 150 feet long is strung between the tops of the flagpoles. At its lowest point the rope sags 25 feet about the ground (see schematic diagram below). How far apart are the flagpoles?
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.Answer: The flagpoles are right next to one another. Did you solve it? Any other answers?
I have produced an ebook containing 101 of the previous Friday Puzzles! It is called PUZZLED and is available for the Kindle (UK here and USA here) and on the iBookstore (UK here in the USA here). You can try 101 of the puzzles for free here.
