Answer:

Ben grew 1 feet between his #12^(th)# and #13^(th)# birthday.

Explanation:

Well, in a easy way,

Ben's height in his #12^(th)# birthday= 4 feet

Ben's height in his #13^(th)# birthday= 5 feet

Now,

The increased height= Present height - Previous height

Following the given equation,

#rArr# Present height - Previous height

#rArr# 5 feet -4 feet

#rArr# 1 feet

#:.# Ben grew 1 feet between his #12^(th)# and #13^(th)# birthday.
