Could someone explain this?

Thank you!

1/2 of 64= 32.

32 feet is how high it bounces on the 1st bounce

1/2 of 32=16

16 feet is how high it bounces on the 2nd bounce

Need anymore help or can you do the rest by yourself?

8 meters

The nth bounce derives from

B = 64/(2^n)where n == the nth boumce.

the answer is 1/4 meters
