- For Teachers
I took the grammar test and the question was "rewrite the given sentence with multilplicative expression"
- It is only 3mm long, but it can jump about 30 cm.
and my answer was
- it can jump about 100 times of its body size.
Correct answer by teacher
- it can jump about 100 times its body size. (without 'of')
I understand people uses the correct answer. However, I don't understand why I am wrong grammatically.
Can you help me understand?
'about 100 times of its size'
If I'm worng, can you make it clear? thanks

I'd use about 100 times its body length. There's no need to say of.
