Ben grew 1 feet between his ${12}^{t h}$ and ${13}^{t h}$ birthday.

#### Explanation:

Well, in a easy way,

Ben's height in his ${12}^{t h}$ birthday= 4 feet

Ben's height in his ${13}^{t h}$ birthday= 5 feet

Now,

The increased height= Present height - Previous height

Following the given equation,

$\Rightarrow$ Present height - Previous height

$\Rightarrow$ 5 feet -4 feet

$\Rightarrow$ 1 feet

$\therefore$ Ben grew 1 feet between his ${12}^{t h}$ and ${13}^{t h}$ birthday.
