A ball is dropped from a height of 12 meters and rebounds one-half the distance on each bounce. Find the total distance it travels.

This is the sum of an infinite geometric series:

Sum =F / [1 - R], where F = First term, R = Common Ratio

Sum = 12/ [1 - 1/2]

Sum = 12 / (1/2)

Sum = 12 x 2

Sum = 24 meters.

Thanks a lot!
