10-117.

A hiker decided to spend his days walking around the country. On the first day he walked $25$ miles, but on the following days he found he could not keep up that pace. On average he traveled a $5\%$ shorter distance each day. If he could walk forever, how far would he go?

Treat this as an infinite geometric series with $a=25$ and $r=0.95$.
