Two rivers of unequal width (64m and 125m) meet at a right angle, forming an L-shaped channel. What is the longest possible log you can float on it?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried for equal widths and built a recursive algorithm for turning the log. But it is getting stuck if the log is [tex]2\sqrt{2}(Width)[/tex]
