I need some help with these quesitons
1. a1 = 1, and an = 4/3an1 for n = 2, 3, 4, ___. What is the common ration, r, for this sequence?
2. A rubber ball is dropped from a height of 50 ft. Assume that each bounce of the ball is vertical and that each bounce reaches a height of 5/6 of the maximum height of the previous bounce. What is the total distance traveled throughout the lifetime of bounces for this ball?
I'm not sure I even understand this question
