Cecil now has a tightrope that is feet long.

  1. Cecil makes seven jumps (all the same length) and walks feet to reach the end and go down the ladder. How long is each jump?

    A diagram like the one below should help.

    Before Cecil had to walk feet, how far had he jumped?

    If Cecil made jumps that were all the same length to go feet, how long was each jump?

    feet feet feet

    feet per jump

  2. If represents the length of one jump and represents the length of two jumps, write an expression that represents Cecil's journey across the rope.

    If you did jumps and then walked feet the expression would be .
