You know that the ladder, ground and side of the house will form a triangle. You know the length of two of the sides, and you can find the last side length by using pythagorean's theorem. \[10^{2}=5^{2}+x ^{2}\] Now just solve for x and that will be the height of the ladder on the side of the house.
