  • Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

     This is a simple proportion problems.

    7 kilogram weight attache to a spring stretches  = 6 meters

     1 kilogram would stretch                                       =  6/7 m

    Therefore 42 kilograms would  stretch                  = (6/7 x 42)meters

                                                                                     =  36 meters.
