Using paperclips as units of measurement, how long are the scissors?

The first thing we’re going to do is gather some paperclips. And then, we’ll take the paperclips, lay them on their side, and line them up next to the scissors. Here’s what one paperclip lined up would look like. But one paperclip is not the size of the scissors. So we’re going to need some more.

Now, we have two paperclips, three paperclips, and four paperclips. It takes four paperclips to equal the length of the scissors.

So we say the length of the scissors is four paperclips long.
