Can you help me solve this please?
A ladder that is 6m long rests with one end on the horizontal ground, and the other end against a vertical wall. Considering the ground and the wall as the X- and Y-axes respectively, find the locus of the mindpoint of the ladder.
2. Connect the midpoints by a smooth curve.
3. Let F denote the footpoint of the ladder with F(t, 0) and T the top of the ladder with . Then the midpoint of the ladder is
Keep in mind that
4. That means the curve of all midpoints is described by the parametric equation:
5. Solve the first equation for t and plug in this term into the 2nd equation. Re-arrange the equation until you have the standard equation of a circle around the origin with radius 3.
