A ball is dropped from the top of a 25-m ladder. In each bounce, the ball reaches a vertical height
that is 3/5 the previous vertical height.Determine the total vertical distance traveled by the ball
when it contacts the ground for the sixth time. Express your answer to the nearest tenth of a metre.
