1. The heights which were reached by the ball perfom a geometric sequence:
2. Every bounce adds two equal distances (one way up, same way down) to the total distance.
3. When the ball touches the ground the 7th time, it has performed 6 complete bounces.
4. The total distance is a geometric serie:
Plug in the values you know:
You have to double this value (see 2.) and you'll get approximately 54.73
