Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

16.75 are the feet which are out of each other

feet in which part of cart is out = 16.75/12 =1.4feet

how much of each cart is inside another when they are "nested?'

=3-1.4 = 1.6 feet

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

20*1.4= 28 feet

20*1.4= 28 feet when nested
