# Distance from mirror

A dressing mirror mounted on a vertical wall is $$1.7 \text{ m}$$ tall with the bottom $$0.3 \text{ m}$$ above the floor. A bare light-bulb hangs on the ceiling with a horizontal distance of $$1.0 \text{ m}$$ away from the wall with the mirror. The light-bulb is $$3.0 \text{ m}$$ above the floor. Approximately how long is the streak of the reflected light across the floor, as measured perpendicularly away from the wall with the mirror?
