The side that is is hinged at one end of the . It is free to swing in a plane that is perpendicular to the table. ----------------------------------- If you lay it alongside the side, the difference is , so is one limit. ----------------------------------- As I swing the side I must stop before the distance from the free end of and the unhinged end of equals , because must be the shortest side ----------------------------------- So, the limits are Hope this isn't confusing
