    Answer:

    514 feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Just simply use the pythagorean thereom:

    a^2 +b^2 = c^2

    put in the values of a, b, and c with the side lengths of the triangle:

    x feet, 64 feet, and x+4 feet

    x^2 +64^2 = (x+4)^2 , thus x =510

    the hypotenuse = x+4 feet = 510 + 4 = 514

    ANSWER: 514 feet
