Drawing it out would help.
yes, but how could you find this using math?
When you draw it out, you'll find that you have two similar triangles. At that point, you can just use proportions to solve.

thanks! but as far as finding its length, since it is slanting down, waht must you use to find the answer?
What you'll find is that AM/AB = AP/AC = MP/BC, since corresponding parts of similar triangles are proportional to each other.
oh so it has nothing to do with the slope?
Nope.
awesome thanks man!
