It is given that AS = SD = DA

Therefore, ΔASD is an equilateral triangle. OA (radius) = 20 m

Medians of equilateral triangle pass through the circum centre (O) of the equilateral triangle ASD. We also know that medians intersect each other in the ratio 2: 1. As AB is the median of equilateral triangle ASD, we can write

Therefore, the length of the string of each phone will be 203 m.
