@TheMind, you sound like you're about to give the answer. Don't do it. Explain it to @waheguru. Help him so that he is able to solve it on his own.

It's not difficult to explain. You should at least make an attempt to explain it.

you want to bank the spider off of the side rails in such a manner that they add up to a straight line to the fly
amistre64
  • amistre64
|dw:1346011245866:dw| peel open the room like a box, and go stright for the fly
waheguru
  • waheguru
Yea, i made the wrong shape |dw:1346011341797:dw|

you dont play much pool do you ....
amistre64
  • amistre64
the direct route may be shorter tho, just to beeline across the ceiling, while dodging the can of raid
amistre64
  • amistre64
i was thinking of a fire river and shortest route, but theres no fire here is there

yeah, the shortest distance to the fire is a stright line, but if you have to go get water first .....
waheguru
  • waheguru
Its 40
waheguru
  • waheguru
oh
waheguru
  • waheguru
do you have measurements for that question
waheguru

amistre64
  • amistre64
no, the river fire usually just asks for the point along the river that makes the shortest distance between start and fire
amistre64
  • amistre64
so, the stright line approach gives me 42 feet to run down11, across 30 and up 1 to the fly
waheguru
  • waheguru
yes
amistre64
  • amistre64
any bank shot produces a hypotenuse that is by default, longer than any of the legs, so longer than 42
waheguru
  • waheguru
Yes, the shortest is the one we found 40
amistre64
  • amistre64
40, or 42?
waheguru
  • waheguru
40
amistre64
  • amistre64
i cant see it as 40, what was the method you employed?
waheguru
  • waheguru
We are talking about the spider and the fly one right ?
amistre64
  • amistre64
correct
waheguru

|dw:1346012153813:dw|
amistre64
  • amistre64
you did not add in the foot away from the walls 24 and 32
amistre64
  • amistre64
oh, and the fly is at the other end of that square, anoter 10 feet
waheguru
  • waheguru
Woops actually the answer to 32 and 24 is 40
waheguru
  • waheguru
No the ordering is right
