A tunnel with a parabolic arch is 12m wide. If the height of the arch 4m from the left is 6m, can a truck that is 5m tall and 3.5m wide pass through the tunnel?

Can someone please help me with this? and could you show me steps how you got the answer, i don't understand the question. Thanks in advance!
