Jean-Marc's Angle of Fire
Jean-Marc passed on this problem to me. Here's the story. You're on one side of a pit of fire. You see two walls protruding from it. You must figure out how to build a wall so that if it were continued past the pit of fire it would bisect the angle. I solved this with trig the other day during a meeting and told Jean-Marc. He said the fun solution is purely geometric. So I'm back at work on this problem with my weak geometry. Help!
