He has an equation for me here, and I will pass it on to you all while I try and figure it out myself. There is an arc with a 294' radius. And a wall that runs tangent to it for 80'. The unknown is the distances between the arc and the tangent line from where it touches out to 80'. Need to know the distances at intervals of 4'. +1 to anyone who figures it out. __________________ __________________ “Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.” - Dr. Suess

The meaning of life is 42.
Everything is 42.

Are you serious? LOL It's from a movie. In this movie, the characters realize the meaning of everything = 42.

May I suggest finding a way to put this on a graph? An equation for the circle would make this a really easy task. Put the center at (0, -294) and then the distance will be the opposite of the y-coordinate at each x. If that makes sense. __________________ AMD Athlon 64X2 4200+, 2 GB ram, 2 TB HDD, Ubuntu+SAMBA ♫ Lenovo T410, i5@ 2.4 GHz, 4 GB ram, 7
