SUNDAY PUZZLE #48
 If a line is drawn from the top of each cactus to the bottom of the other, as shown in the diagram, they intersect at a point 50 cm above the ground. What is the distance between the cactuses? Si on dessine une droite du sommet de chaque cactus jusqu’au pied de l’autre, elles se croiseront en un point qui s’élève de 50 cm au-dessus du sol. Quelle est la distance qui sépare les cactus? Se viene tracciata una retta che parte dalla cima di ogni cactus e che finisce ai piedi dell’altro cactus, queste si incroceranno in un punto alto 50 cm. Qual è la distanza che separa i cactus?
