I have a geometry problem for those of you who would like to tackle it. See attached photo. What is the best way to determine the angle of the diagonal board so that the sides of the diagonal board hit the corners of the gate exactly?
Thanks!
Paul

Here's one solution I came up with but am wondering if a more elegant one is out there...
