3-97.

Each of the diagrams below represents a sequence for a tightrope walker. For each one, explain the sequence and find the length of the unknown trick.

Since the tightrope walker performs the trick

times and goes a total of units, this can be thought of as what value times will give ? Four times

equals .

The trick isunits long.

The first time he crosses, the tightrope walker performs the trick

times and then walks units. Remember to describe the second trip and to find the length of the unknown trick.
