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......
