You'll have to learn basic trigonometry before you can solve the exercise.

Hint: draw a horizontal line from the sphere position on the right (the dotted one), to the vertical solid line. Consider the right triangle that this creates.

OMG YES! I told you guys, it probably was staring right in my face. I was thinking more in the terms of forming and isosceles triangle in order to keep the lengths the same, but then again keeping them the same is the problem itself! Thanx a tonne!
