    19 feet and 12.5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    X + (X-6.5) = 31.5

    2X = 31.6-6.5

    X = 25/2 or 12.5

    One ladder = x feet

    other ladder = x - 6.5  feet


    Combine height is 31.5 feet

    x + x - 6.5 = 31.5

    2x - 6.5 = 31.5

    2x = 38

    x = 19 feet


    One ladder = x = 19 feet

    Other ladder = x - 6.5 = 19 - 6.5 = 12.5 feet


    19 feet and 12.5 feet
