    Answer:

    55.6 inch

    Step-by-step explanation:

    the cardboard tree, the horizontal base and the diagonal would form a right angled triangle.

    the carboard tree would be the height

    the horizontal base would be the base

    the diagonal would be the hypotenuse

    the length of the diagonal base can be determined using the Pythagoras theorem

    the Pythagoras theorem : a² + b² = c²

    a = base

    b = height

    c = hypotenuse

    48² + 28² = 3088

    c = √3088 = 55.6 inch
