I assume you see situations like this often:

So how do you resolve this?

Let us show you how to deal with this problem.

You need to draw a line in your mind as you look at the table to find the right angle to hit the cue ball.

Just look at the horizontal or vertical line and you see the distance, so you just have to divide it in half and you know where you need to hit the ball. Let's apply this to the situation at the beginning.

The objective is to pocket the red ball or at least place it close to the hole (let's assume this is your only play option).

Now you need to add half of that on the other side and see the point where you need to hit the wall for the shot.
