## Homework Statement

The image can be seen at:

The rectangle in the picture represents the floor of a room and AB a straight piece of string lying on the floor whose ends touch the opposite walls w1 and w2. The blob is the same string tangled up. I need to show that there is at least one point of the tangled string whose distances from the two walls are exactly the same as they were before.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried to graph the situation by saying the regular string is f(x) and the tangled string is g(x) and then graphing h(x)=f(x)-g(x) but I am now stuck.

Thank You
