I've a test soon, and I've been thinking about this, and not quite sure how to approach it. I think I understand the chapter, but I can't seem to get it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A uniform 210lb telephone pole is sticking out over the Grand Canyon (32 feet of it is sticking out) with a massless cat stuck at the end of it. If you weigh 190lbs, how far out can you walk onto the pole to rescue the cat.

This seems relatively easy but, again, I just can't get it. Answer's suppost to be 14.4ft. Thanks!
