This is actually a trick question. Not time consuming if you see the trick. The two poles are a distance of 0 (zero) apart. Draw the poles and the cable. By logical thinking, half of the cable is 50 meters. The cable therefore is hanging directly downward! Meaning that the cable has to be doubled back upon itself, and the two poles must be coincident and 0 (zero) meters apart!

thanks for the help :)

Of course!
