## anonymous one year ago A rocket is divided into three sections. The top section is 1/6 the length of the bottom section. The middle section is 1/2 the length of the bottom section. The total length is 240. What is the length of each section.

We know that the length of the bottom section was not giving, so we'll just call it "x" We also know that the top section is 1/6 length of the bottom section x, and the middle section is 1/2 length of the bottom section x. All together, the total is 240. So, $$x+\large\frac{1}{6}x+\large\frac{1}{2}x=240$$
