This Application Problem is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 2, Grade 5. Scientists are creating a material that may replace damaged cartilage in human joints. This hydrogel can stretch to 21 times its original length. If a strip of hydrogel measures 3.2 cm, what would its length be when stretched to capacity? This problem is designed to bridge from Lesson 5 where students are multiplying without renaming.
