A rectangular sheet of paper of width a and length b, where 0<a<b, is folded by taking one corner of the sheet and placing it at point P on the opposite long side of the sheet. The fold is flatened to form a crease across the sheet. Assuming that the fold is made that there is no flap extending beyond the original sheet, find the point P that produces the crease of minimum length. What is the length of that crease?
