# 1 Answer

Start with a right angled triangle. Adjacent side = 12, opposite side = 1 is given to you.

1.5 meters given to you is opposite side. Adjacent side you can calculate. Since the slope must be same

1/12 = 1.5/x

x = 12 times 1.5 = 18

That means stairs of the house must be the diagonal of a right angled triangle whose adjacent side is 18m and opposite side = 1.5m

Diagonal

^{2}= 18^{2}+ 1.5^{2}Diagonal = length of stairs = √(18

^{2}+1.5^{2}) = 18.06m:)
