**Steve**, Monday, July 16, 2012 at 10:55amI assume you mean the monkey leaped straight up. Ignoring the fact that free-fall trajectories are parabolas, and not straight lines, we have

x = height of leap

300 = hypotenuse

(because the distance down the tree and over to the well is 300)

√(200^2 + (100+x)^2) = 300

x = 100(√5 - 1) = 123 cubits.

That's some leap!!
