Lol this one's funny:

Two vertical 750 ft posts have a 1000 ft rope stretched between their top most points. The rope sags to within 250 ft from the ground. How far apart are the posts?

An answer of "26 ft" is correct (but only when the rope is a rubber band).

Psst... Craven already answered this one. Remember, the rope is 1000 ft long, so the midpoint (lowest point when it sags) is 500 ft...
