**Answer: 240**</h3>

============================================================

Explanation:

Let y be the length of the vertical dashed red line in the drawing. More specifically, this dashed line is an altitude.

Along the top, the entire segment is 400 units long. The right piece is 144 units long, so the left piece is 400-144 = 256 units long.

The triangles are similar, allowing us to set up a proportion like so:

144/y = y/256

144*256 = y*y

36864 = y^2

y^2 = 36864

y = sqrt(36864)

y = 192

So this is the length of that vertical dashed red line.

--------------------------------

Now shift your attention solely on the smaller triangle on the right side. It is a right triangle with legs 144 and 192. The hypotenuse is x.

We can use the pythagorean theorem to find x.

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

c = sqrt( a^2 + b^2 )

x = sqrt( 144^2 + 192^2 )

**x = 240**
