12-144.

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 $5\%$ less each day. If he could walk forever, how far would he go?

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