Sum

A ball is dropped from a height of 80 ft. The ball is such that it rebounds (3/4)^"th" of the height it has fallen. How high does the ball rebound on 6th bounce? How high does the ball rebound on nth bounce?

#### Solution

Here, a = 80, r = 3/4

1st height in the bounce = 80 xx 3/4

Height in the 6th bounce = 80 xx 3/4 xx (3/4)^5

= 80 xx (3/4)^6

= Height in the nth bounce = 80(3/4)^"n"
