We have a ladder sliding against a vertical wall and against a horisontal ground.
Pick out a fixed point P on the ladder and find a mathematical model (expression) that describes the path that the point P will follow when the ladder is sliding.

Control Objects:
- Path         : Show a part of the curve
- Ellipse      : Show the whole path (ellipse)
- P Midpoint   : Set the position of point P to the mid point of the ladder
- Txt          : Show the length of the two parts of the ladder
- Formula      : Show the ellipse formula
- Move Point   : Move the point P on the ladder
- Move Ladder  : Move the ladder (sliding against the wall and the ground)

- Info         : Show information and the explanation of the curve as an ellipse
