    Since the links on each end must be hanging from the same nail, the answer must be . . . no distance at all.

    Probably on the same hook – but consider this.
    A chain made up of 5 24″ links hangs from a wall with both ends on the same hook. How low does the lowest link of the chain hang.

  • Taylor, you are today’s winner!
    Both ends are nailed with the same nail, so no distance. In order for the 10 foot chain to dip down 5 feet it must dip 5 feet down and 5 feet up, totaling the length of the chain.
