    Be more careful where you put your periods and capitalized letters. "How" starts your question and should be capitalized. "When" does not.

    You probably meant:

    How far has the ball traveled when it hits the ground for the fifth time?

    The answer is

    16 + 2*8 + 2*4 + 2*2 + 2*1 = 46 m
