A 13 foot long ramp rises 5 feet from the first floor to the second floor. What is the distance from the base of the ramp to the bottom of the first floor?

This forms a right triangle with hypotenuse = 13 ft

   5 is one leg   the other leg is  L2

Use pythagorean theorem

 

5^2 + L2 2  = 132      Where L2 is the other leg of the right triangle....solve for L2
