Ladder in the Hallway Problem

What's the longest ladder that can make it around the corner in a hallway? Allows students to control the width of the hallways to explore the relationship between the ratio of the widths and the location of most-constricted length. This could use some work. I'm mostly testing GeoGebraTube.
