Jeri has a piece of rope that is feet long. If a board measured two lengths of the rope, how long is the board? What length could she mark if she measured out the rope three times? Make a diagram to justify your answer. Clearly explain your thinking.

Think of the rope as a ruler that is feet long. If you had ropes that long,
how long would the combined rope be? What about if you had ropes of that length?

The board is feet long, since she used the rope twice.

Using the rope times creates a length of feet.
