##### Piano mover's problem
Can you move a piano round a particular corner?

##### Piano Moving 2
First look at Piano Moving Seeing multiple positions of the piano at once makes the problem easier. Next look at Piano Moving 3

##### Piano moving 3
First look at Piano Moving and Piano Moving 2 We invert the problem and ask what size corners a specific piano can only just fit round.

One of the first calculus class problems is the sliding ladder. In this problem, a ladder is resting against a wall when, all of a sudden, it starts sliding down! In this problem you're solving for dx/dt or the rate at which the point B is moving away from the wall (point C). Input constraints: -The rate of slide must be negative for the ladder to slide down -The initial height of the ladder must be less than the ladders length

##### Application of The Mean Value Theorem to problem solving

##### Application of The Mean Value Theorem to problem solving
Given function f(x) = (x+1)/(x-1). Show that there is no such c that f(3) = f'(c)(3-0). Why does this not contradict the Mean Value Theorem?
