1. ## Space Worm

A space worm is composed of 13 congruent sections, each of length 7 units. What is the length, in units of the space worm when it lies flat and its body makes a line of all the sections?

Please explain how to get the answer like steps on how to get the answer. If it's a hint, please put it in words a 7th grader would know! Thanks!

the worm has 13 congruent sections and each one of them is 7 units...a unit can be 1 cm or 1 inch or...any unit...what arithmetic operation gives the total units?

What level are you in school? This looks like a fourth or fifth grade (nine or ten years old) problem. Have you learn multiplication yet?

Is it multiplication? If it is, do I multiply 13 by 7 which gives me 91 units?

Yes, I have learned multiplication in school. I am not in fourth or fifth grade. I may have forgotten how to do these problems because I am learning higher level of math and I thought that we use the math that we learn to solve this kind of problem. I'm very sorry if I got you mixed up.
