Hi I got a 10 cm long line, and it touches point 1,1
I need to calculate where it touches x and y.
If I think of it like an triangle i get the following information.
- One side is 10 cm.
- You get an angle of 90
- and an Height of 1 cm.
But how do i calculate the rest?
UPDATE Figured out that its know as the Ladder problem. http://www.mathematische-basteleien.de/ladder.htm
I also updated the image to make it more clear.
