A-35.

Look back at the data given in problem A-18 that describes the rebound ratio for an official tennis ball. Suppose you drop such a tennis ball from an initial height of

How high would it rebound after the first bounce?

Rebound height = Rebound ratio · Drop height

Substitute the values you know and solve for the unknown.Rebound height =

ft How high would it rebound after the second bounce?

Multiply the initial height by

, two times. How high would it rebound after the fifth bounce?
