Answer :


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.


Consider ΔABC,


BC2 = AB2 + AC2


BC2 = 162 + 122


BC2 = 256 + 144


BC2 = 400


BC = √400 = 20 cm (Length of ladder)


Now after the ladder being pushed 2 feet farther, consider ΔBDE,


DE2 = BD2 + BE2


202 = 142 + BE2


BE2 = 400 – 196 = 204


BE = √204 = = 2√51 cm


The ladder reaches 2√51 cm far up side the house.
