Ab= 18 m
cd= 13 m
bd= 12 m
find ac
construction = draw a line ce parallel to bd
it means ebcd is rectangle 
then ec = 12 m 
angle aec= 90 
ea =ab-eb
  =18 m - 13 m
  = 5 m
ea =5 m
ea^2+ec^2=ac^2
(5m)^2+(12m)^2=ac^2
(25+144)m^2=ac^2
ac^2=169m^2
square rooting both side
ac=13m

Here, ED is parallel and equal to BC
To find the distance between their tops, we will have to find AD
Here as ED is parallel to BC, angle AED=90

According to the Pythagoras theorem,
AE^2 + ED^2 = AD^2
=>25+144=AD^2
=>169=AD^2
=>13=AD
