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, \(x+\large\frac{1}{6}x+\large\frac{1}{2}x=240\)
