Like a Machine

i found this machine near prairie trail elementary school
it was holding up a flag by having someone pull it up and then secure it with a latch or wedge
A pulley pulls up or down multiplying your force as the item is raised a distance making work. The more pulleys there is more rope as the pulleys multiply the force.
It was playing as a ramp for my brothers toy cars and it will let them build up kinetic energy as it goes down.
A inclined plane makes work easier when you pull up it because the force needed is distributed between you and the inclined plane and since you pulled it up the distance and used force your get work.
