A student solved this problem and said the answer was 3 feet. 

 

Gina had two pieces of ribbon. One was  foot long and the other was  foot long. What was the total length of both pieces of ribbon combined? 

 

Is the student's answer reasonable?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

the student's answer was not reasonable in the sense that the case only delt with the ribbons and not anything else. the three feet are not right because we do not understand the origin of the third foot.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
