In the figure, a uniform ladder of weight 200 N and length 10 m leans against a perfectly smooth wall. A firefighter of weight 600 N climbs a distance x up the ladder. The coefficient of static friction between the ladder and the floor is 0.50. What is the maximum value of x for which the ladder will not slip?

X being the hypotenuse from the ground to the fireman
