Cecil now has a tightrope that is
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
If x 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 .
