Hey everyone, I am having a hard time understanding a question regarding parametric equations. Basically:

A ladder 16 feet in length slides down a wall as its bottom is pulled away from the wall, using the angle theta as parameter, find the parametric equations for the path followed by the point P located 5 feet from the top of the ladder.

I am unsure as to how to approach/solve this problem. Any feedback and help is appreciated.

Thanks
