Evan drops a ball vertically from a height of 100 ft.  The peak height after each bounce is half the previous height.  How many feet does the ball travel from the time he drops the ball until it reaches the peak height after the 5th bounce?  Show all steps used to find the solution.

first strike    100 ft       1  

   then up and down  to second strike  = 50 x 2 = 100      2

       then up and down 25 ea   =   50          3

          up and down 12.5   = 25                    4

              up and down 6.25 = 12.5                5

                     up 3.125           = 3.125 ft

   Add the red numbers
