A student measures the length of a brass rod with a steel tape at 20.0°C. The reading is 95.00 cm. What will the tape indicate for the length of the rod when the rod and the tape are at each of the following temperatures?
a)20°C
b)60°C

I will be happy to critique your work on this.
new reading= L+deltaL
DeltaL=L*coeffthermalexpansion*deltaTemp 
question: do you multiply the coefficient for steel in the equation and the coefficient for brass in a separate equation and add them together to get the answer?

The length of the rod will become exactly half of its original value. The length of the rod remains the same. The length of the rod will decrease. The length of the rod will increase. Wouldn't the length double, thus being answer D?
