Hi,

When a distance of 1 unit is moved along x-axis, there is 1 unit height increase along z-axis. Likewise, when a distance of 1 unit is moved along y-axis, there is 2 unit height increase along z-axis. It means that when you move a distance of √2 along diagonal, there would be a 3-unit height increase along z-axis. Please see the the picture.

We only want to move 1-unit along the diagonal and still want the height along z-axis to be maximum. It means that we need a certain combination of x- and y-units.

I think that 0.45 units along x-axis and 0.9 units along y-axis will give us the maximum height along z which is 2.25. Please have a look here.

I'm not sure if the combination given above is correct, and also how the method works. It looks like an optimization problem. Not sure. Could you please guide me? Thank you.
