# POW: Planning Platforms

The second POW of the year was a problem that focussed on stripping down and analyzing algebreic problems to see how we can use them for our own purposes.

The problem goes something like this: During a festivity at the upcoming fourth of July celebration, there have been plans set forth to place baton twirlers on individual platforms. On top of this, each platform will have an individual ribbon hanging down on it, for no reason whatsoever. What we're trying to find in this problem is the total length of the ribbon. However, all other variables are unanswered.

So what we had to do was write up a number of equations that would explain in detail how we can find the total length of ribbon for the platforms, given the variables.

So I came up with a few formulas to explain what I found. Here they are:

X\/1*E=X\/2
