    @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.

    no, the river fire usually just asks for the point along the river that makes the shortest distance between start and fire

    any bank shot produces a hypotenuse that is by default, longer than any of the legs, so longer than 42
