From Michael Blade: There is a cube box 3feet x 3feet x 3ft resting against a vertical wall on level ground. Resting against the outside corner of the box is a ladder 10 feet tall, this ladder is of course resting on the ground but also against the outside corner of the box and rests on the wall.

The question- the ladder is divided into two unequal section bounded by the box to the ground and the box to the wall. what are those dimensions? Answered by Penny Nom.
