Anil Saigal 11/17/2011 PROBLEM # 1 Please send your solutions to mr.asaigal@gmail.com.
 Problems from 11/10/11 Two ladders are placed crosswise in an alley to form a lopsided Xshape. The walls of the alley are not quite vertical, but are parallel to each other. The ground is flat and horizontal. The bottom of each ladder is placed against the opposite wall. The top of the longer ladder touches the alley wall 5 feet vertically higher than the top of the shorter ladder touches the opposite wall, which in turn is 4 feet vertically higher than the intersection of the two ladders. How high vertically above the ground is that intersection? (Figure 1) SOLUTION 2 Congratulations to Aseem Chandawarkar, who was the winner of the last set of puzzles.
