The stoichiometry of 1000 monomer units polymerising is arbitrary. Average chain length, which determines physical properties, is determined by many factors: temperature, pressure, initiator concentration, etc.

Simple radical addition polymerisation of isoprene gives the trans material, Gutta-percha.
