Alfred has just developed a new super ball and you have been asked to test its rebound capabilities. From
your experiment you have found if you drop the ball from a height of 250 centimeters the first bounce average is 180 cm.
rebound ratio = ?
Using this rebound ratio, predict the height of the bounce if you dropped the ball from a height of 50 feet. Explain

• College Algebra -

To get the height if dropped from 50 feet, just use the same bounce ratio.

This assumes that the ball rebounds just the same if dropped from a height 6 times as high.
