Q:
# According to Greek mathematician Zeno, if each bounce of a ball is half the height of the bounce before it,the ball will never stop bouncing.write the fractions in hundredths that should be written at points B and C

Accepted Solution

A:

From the diagram associated with this question it can be seen that the first bounce was 1 units high, thus the second bounce is 1 / 2 = 0.5 units high and the third bounce is 0.5 / 2 = 0.25 = 1/4 units high.

Given that B represents the second bounce and C represents the first bounce, the fractions in hundredths that should be written at points B is 0.50 while at point C is 0.25

Given that B represents the second bounce and C represents the first bounce, the fractions in hundredths that should be written at points B is 0.50 while at point C is 0.25
