When a molecule has a single bond and double bond that connect the same element to another element like in NO3-, in reality the double bond won't be shorter than the single bond. Instead, both bonds will have a length somewhere between the length of a double bond and a single bond. Determining this is probably beyond the scope of the course, but knowing this fact quantitatively would be useful.
