After working hours on my first assignment LOL (i really want to do good in school) i hav ebecame stumpted.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The question is:

A ladder, 2 meters long, is standing flat against a vertical wall. The foot of the ladder is pulled away from the wall. As this happens, the top of the ladder stays in contact with the wall. The process stops when all of the ladder is on the ground. What is the locus of the mid-point of the ladder? (I.e., give a function which describes what happens to the mid-point of the ladder.) im not sure how to approach this problem so im posting here, im going to work on it for a while then go to bed. If someone could help me out that would be great. thx u
