    Answer: The length of the fence will be 150 feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The question is asking you to find the hypotenuse of a rectangle with a length of 120 feet and a width of 90 feet. To find the hypotenuse we will need to use the formula   a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    120 feet will be a

    90 feet will be for b  

    this is because a and b are the two legs of the rectangle.

    120^2 + 90^2 = c^2

    14400 + 8100 = c^2

    22500 = c^2

       c =√22500

     c= 150
