Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

let the second piece = x

first piece = 2x

third piece = 4x

then x + 2x + 4x =240

thus 7x = 240

x= 240/7

x = 34.3 feet

therefore the longest piece is the third piece = 34.3 * 4= 137.2 feet

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
