Let's convert mm to meter first. 1 mm = 0.001 meter 5 mm = 0.005 meter So, if there are 60 termites, the length would be : 0.005 meter x 60 = 0.3 meter.

0,3m is the lenght of termites but there are some spaces between each termites 59 spaces each 1mm(0,001m) so 0,059.in conclusion the chain of termites will have 0,3+0,059=0,359m
