Hi all, lots of activity here on this forum.
Maybe this will start off some communication:
A ladder of 4 Meters is standing against a wall, also against the wal is a cubic box of 1 x 1 x 1 meters. The ladder is touching the box at the side. At what height is the ladder touching the wall?
Seems very simple, but try and you will see......

Have fun!!!!, Robert
