## Answers ( No )

Its because the paper clips used here are of same length (4cm long).

So the measurements of lines two and three need to be multiples of 4 to me measured accurately with the paper.

i.e Line two needs to be 6cm + 2cm = 8cm (eight is a muliple of 4)

Line three needs to be 9cm + 3cm = 12cm (twelve is a multiple of 4)

Step-by-step explanation:

Since line 1 has 3 paper clips and its 12cm in length, the size of the paper clips is 4cm.

Line 2 is 6cm long and will require two more centimeters to measured accurately by the 4cm-paper clips.

Line 3 is 9cm and will require three more centimeters to be measured accurately by the 4cm-paper clips.
