OK, I'm clueless. Why is the simple answer (x = 5 cm) wrong?

I admit to doing mathy type stuff all week at work, so my brain may be out of gas.

Nevermind. I finally got it. LOL. I have a meeting on Monday where I'm going to have to try to explain the math stuff I've done and why the code _still_ doesn't work. I'm sure I'll be drawing on the white board. I think I'll use this.

The meeting when very well, Thanks. I brought along some diagrams and equations. I started showing them to people and they got scared. Thus, they didn't ask any questions so I didn't get to use this joke. But it is in my bag of tricks for later...

Elegant.

One time a man offered an engineering solution to me by illustrating a "frictionless surface". Since I didn't know how to create one of those, I marked the sketch with "infinite force" as an alternative. Problem solved.

It's like that old cartoon where a complex flowchart ends with a box that says, "Then a miracle happens".
