A ball is dropped from a height of 5m above the floor. After bouncing once, it reaches a height of 4m above the floor. The height reached by the ball after each subsequent bounce forms a geometric sequence.
(a) Find the maximum height above the floor the ball reached after the 3rd bounce?
(b) Find the minimum number of times the ball will bounce before the maximum height reached above the floor is less than 18m. Core 2 - Geometric Sequences and Series 4
