The Valentine Problem

Sarah was told that she has a very special Valentine surprise hidden behind a brick in the wall of the school building.  She puts a 25-foot ladder against the side of the wall, with the base of the ladder 7 feet from the building.  After she climbs the ladder she finds that she needs to move it down 4 feet to reach the right brick.  How far out did she move the base of the ladder?
