I don't understand how to do related rates?

A ladder 10 meters long rests on horizontal ground and leans against a vertical wall. The foot of the ladder is pulled away from the wall at the rate of 0.5 m/sec. How fast is the top sliding down the wall when the foot of the ladder is 6 m from the wall?
