An architect designs a house that is 12 m wide. The rafters holding up the roof are equal length and meet at an angle of 68°. The rafters extend 0.6 m beyond the supporting wall. How long are the rafters?

Hi - I was wondering if you could help me with this question. I'm not sure what they mean by rafters extending beyond the support wall and how I would be able to figure out the length if it extends.
