    For this case we can model the problem as a rectangle triangle.

    We have two sides of the triangle.

    We must find the hypotenuse.

    Using the Pythagorean theorem we have:

    h = root ((10) ^ 2 + (4) ^ 2)

    h = 10.77 feet

    Answer:

    his ladder must be 10.77 feet long to reach the hoop
