We can use the pathagareom therom to figure this out a squared+ b squared = c squared

so 12 squared is 144

+ 3 squared which is 9 =

153 which and the square root of 153 is 12.37

You have the rght idea, HiylinLink...but the ladder length is actually the hypotenuse of a right triangle

So....it reaches

√ [ 12^2 - 3^2 ] =

√ 144 - 9 ] =

√135 ≈

11.6 ft
