Third, I solve the problem using this logic: First you know that the ladder has 18 rungs. And you know the distance between each rung is 5.7 inches. Next, the thickness of the rung is given as 1.1 inches. Since you know that each rung has a thickness of 1.1 inches, and they are 5.7 inches apart, you can find the distance from the first rung to the second rung by adding 1.1 inches to 5.7 inches, which you will get 6.8 inches. Now you know the distance from the bottom of the rung to the next rung. Afterwards, you know there are
