Ladder

Ladder 10 meters long is staying against the wall so that its bottom edge is 6 meters away from the wall. What height reaches ladder?

Correct result:

h =  8 m

Solution:

c=10 m a=6 m h=c2a2=10262=8 mc=10 \ \text{m} \ \\ a=6 \ \text{m} \ \\ h=\sqrt{ c^2-a^2 }=\sqrt{ 10^2-6^2 }=8 \ \text{m}
