Answer: The length of the fence will be 150 feetStep-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
