$4109ft$
Use the formula given to find the measurement of one wire for each height. Short wire =$\sqrt (200^{2}+(0.55\times200)^{2}) \approx 228.3$ Middle wire = $\sqrt (400^{2}+(0.55\times400)^{2}) \approx 456.5$ Large wire = $\sqrt (600^{2}+(0.55\times600)^{2}) \approx 684.8$ Each height has 3 wires so multiply each height by 3: $228.3\times3 = 684.9$ $456\times3 = 1369.5$ $684.8\times3 =2054.4$ Add them all up: $684.9+1369.5+2054.4=4108.8$
