Explain the importance of an arthropod’s exoskeleton. In your explanation, be sure to address how is it able to grow tens of times larger than it was at birth, even though it has an exoskeleton. Also discuss at least two benefits of an exoskeleton as well as how the arthropod grows without compromising this skeletal system.

I just need a few links (or anything helpful) to get me started, please. Thank you in advance.
