This is a basic application of the pythagorean theorem (i hope as I doubt this is a question from an advanced physics class)
The length of one of the sides is 13 feet and the other side is 9 feet so we need the lenght of the hypotneuse

A wire reaches from the top of a 13-meter pole to a point on the ground 9 meters away from the base of the pole. What is the legnth of the wire to the nearest tenth of an inch?
