Walking Under Ladders-- I

Geometry Level 3

A 6-foot wide alley has both walls perpendicular to the ground.

Two ladders, one 10 feet long, the other 12 feet, are propped up from opposite bottom corners to the adjacent wall, forming an X shape.

All four legs of each ladder are firmly touching either the bottom corner or the opposite wall.

The two ladders are side by side and also touching each other at the intersection of the X shape.

What is the distance (in Feet) from the point of intersection to the ground?
