The longer leg of a right triangle is 7 cm more than the shorter leg. The length of the hypotenuse is 3 cm more than twice the length of the shorter leg. Find the length of the hypotenuse. A 13-ft ladder is leaning against a wall. The distance from the top of the ladder to the bottom of the wall is 7 ft more than the distance from the bottom of the ladder to the wall. Find the distance from the bottom of the ladder to the wall. Ladder Wall #o1A A wire is attached to the top of a pole. The pole is 2 ft shorter than the wire, and the distance from the wire on the ground to the bottom of the pole is 9 ft less han the length of the wire. Find the length of the wire and the height of the pole.

Question

It's the 13ft ladder question. 

The longer leg of a right triangle is 7 cm more than the
shorter leg. The length of the hypotenuse is 3 cm more
than twice the length of the shorter leg. Find the length
of the hypotenuse.
A 13-ft ladder is leaning against a wall. The distance
from the top of the ladder to the bottom of the wall is
7 ft more than the distance from the bottom of the
ladder to the wall. Find the distance from the bottom
of the ladder to the wall.
