A ball is dropped from a height of 10 m. Each time it strikes the ground it bounces vertically to a height that is 3/4 of the preceding height. Find the total distance the ball will travel if it is assumed to bounce infinitely often.

Answer: 70 m

I cannot for the life of my figure this out.

I tried the obvious way: making the geometric series $\displaystyle (10)* (\frac{3}{4})^k$ and then found the convergence as k --> infinity, and got 40.

Next, because the ball bounces twice, I thought perhaps I needed a 2. I made the following geometric series,

$\displaystyle (2)(10)*\frac{3}{4}$, used the convergence formula, and got 80.

I believe my second attempt makes more sense, but it doesn't equal 70 m.

So, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
