2-130.

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 andrepresents 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 .
