A 15 m long ladde

Answer :


Let BC be the length of ladder i.e. 15 cm and the height of the window from the ground be AB i.e. 12 cm.


We know that in a right angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.


In ΔABC, BC2 = AB2 + AC2


152 = 122 + x2


225 = 144 + x2


x2 = 225 – 144 = 81


x = √81 = 9 cm
