I'm not sure the hidden camera technology is going to be effective!

Call the repair service again this camera still isn't working.....They said we have to relocate the camera...WE would relocate the camera if we could locate the camera, but it's not labelled and we can't see anything to give us a clue as to it's location...The only guy that knows retired....Well they say they only do maintenance repair, no relocation, that's installation and their installation guy retired....

Joe the "Peeping Tom" is very happy to have found the perfect mounting spot for his new Lyn-Door Industries "X-Ray" video camera.

Hmmm.

My plan to see more of Kim's butt while watching 'Keeping Up With The Kardashian's' didn't work out the way I'd hoped.

Well we see which department has more "pull" in this company. Obviously Security is second.

Question: Use only Common core mathematics to solve the following problem.

A camera is mounted square on a straight flat wall with a fulcrum/pivot 12" below the ceiling and 12" from the wall.

At maximum vertical travel the centre-line of the lens is 6" below and parallel to the ceiling where the viewing area is 12" square at a distance of 24" from the fulcrum.

A screen with a straight horizontal top edge is to be hung at 36" parallel to the wall and square to the camera.

Calculate the minimum length of the hangers so that the top of the screen does not obscure the view.

Trigonometry and calculus permitted but workings must be shown using Common Core methodology.

Swing the camera 900 to see the intended viewing area.

According to "TSA" this is the best way to monitor a monitor!
