For the example on the left (kicking to the corner pocket):
 The CB is 2 diamonds "vertically" from the kick/bank cushion, and the kick/bank cushion is 4 diamonds "vertically" from the target  so the CB's total "vertical" travel to the target is 6 diamonds, and the CB travels 1/3 of that total distance to reach the kick/bank cushion.
 If the CB travels 1/3 of its total "vertical" distance to reach the kick/bank cushion, it must also travel 1/3 of its total "sideways" distance (parallel to the kick/bank cushion) to get there.
The fractions of the CB's "vertical" travel distance are dictated by the position of the CB and the target. The fractions of the CB's "sideways" travel distance are chosen to match the fractions of "vertical" travel distance.
Hope that helps,
