A 13 feet ladder is placed 5 feet away from a wall. The distance from the ground straight up to the top of the wall is 13 feet.

Answer is simple, you can find the answer through Pythagorean theorem.

a squared + b squared= c squared

if 13 is a and 5 Is b plug into the equation

13^2+5^2=c^2

194 (13 squared = 169 + 5 squared = 25) = c squared.

now take the square root

c^2 is approximately 13.9

hope I helped :)
