A 54-foot cable is hung from the top of a building that is 52 feet tall. The cable needs to be fastened 12 feet from the base of the building. Is the cable long enough? Explain.​


  1. Answer:
    Step-by-step explanation:
    If the building is 52 feet tall then the cable can stretch from the top of the building to the bottom, so therefore if it is hung 12 feet from the base of the building it would only need to stretch 12 feet from bottom to top which it can do. Hope this helps 🙂
