A ladder is resting against a wall. The top of the ladder touches the wall at a height of 15 feet and the length of the ladder is one foot more than twice the distance from the wall. Find the distance from the wall to the bottom of the ladder. (Hint: Use the Pythagorean Theorem.)

I guess the wall and the ladder form a right triangle.
