I'm trying to figure out what B.y' is. Both examples are proportional to each other. While B.y is measured with the origin at the top-left hand corner, B.y' is measured with the origin at the bottom-left hand corner. The things I currently know from the diagram above are: A.y A.h B.y B.h I don't know the values of H1 nor H2, but I do know the value of (H2 / H1). Stating the obvious: A.y' = H1 - (A.y + A.h) B.y' = H2 - (B.y + B.h) (A.y' / B.y') = (H2 / H1) (A.h / B.h) = (H2 / H1) ... And so on I doubt that this problem is solvable (too many unknowns), but figured it'd be worth posting to see if I'm wrong. Can anyone solve this? :P

No, this is not solvable, because the length of H1 and H2 may be arbitrarily extended (in proportion) without changing any of the known quantities.

Doh I was afraid of that :(

Thanks anyhow :D
