Yes but if you don't assume the cord stretches, this must mean the poles give in a little or the cord just wouldn't budge. But like Doc said, I guess its more reasonable that the cord stretches before the poles move in.

Just for fun, figure out the angle both ways and compare. The way I did it, [itex]cos\theta = 0.019996[/itex]; the other way gives [itex]cos\theta = 0.02[/itex]. No measureable difference!
