Planks across a ditch (Posted on 2017-08-17) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Consider an L-shaped ditch with straight sides and both legs of the same uniform width.

Part 1: How wide a ditch can be bridged with two 10 foot planks?

Part 2: How wide a ditch can be bridged with three 10 foot planks?

Note: consider the planks to be rigid line segments - very thin yet strong.
