Question description

I don't need the answer to the question nor do I want it. I want to understand the question so that I can answer it myself. Do I simply multiply the molecular weight by 16 or is it something else? I cannot figure it out. 

The question I need to understand is as follows:  

 Suppose the nucleotide sequence targeted by the primers in this activity is composed of a number of repeats of a single 16-base-pair sequence. In other words, every repeat within the targeted sequence means another 16 base pairs in the genome.

Judging by the sizes of the fragments you measured in Part C, about how many repeats of the 16-base-pair sequence would you expect to find in each of the suspect’s genomes?
