    Answer:

    12 cm

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Leg of one side  = 5 cm

    Hypotenuse = 13cm

    According to the theorem,

       A^2 + B^2 = C^2

       5^2 + B^2 = 13^2

       25 + B^2 = 169

    Subtract 25 form both sides,

        B^2 = 169 – 25

         B^2 = 144

         B = sqrt( 144 )

          B = 12

    Done!
