A uniform ladder whose length is 5.8 m and whose weight is 380 N leans against a frictionless vertical wall. The coefficient of static friction between the level ground and the foot of the ladder is 0.54. What is the greatest distance the foot of the ladder can be placed from the base of the wall without the ladder immediately slipping?

thanks for the help
