Two vertical 750 ft posts have a 1000 ft rope stretched between their topmost points. The rope sags to within 250 ft from the ground. How far apart are the posts?
0 ft. The rope sags 500ft from the top of the post to make it 250ft above the ground. Since the rope is 1000 it must be folded directly in half which would happen only if the two posts were right next to each other.
