How do we calculate the bond length from a lewis structure?

In the question the bond length of the single, double, and triple bonds will probably be given if they ask you to find the length of the bonds. With
that information, the bond length would be a value in-between the given lengths. To be safe, I just average the lengths of the bonds.

Any bond length question would probably be similar to that on the midterm where we have to find the length of a bond for a resonance structure and therefore would average bonds based on what is given.

We do not need to know the specific length of a bond, we only need to know the trends of bond lengths.
