Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    A superball is dropped from a building 30 metres high. It each bounce, it loses 30% of its height. What will be the total distance traveled by the ball until it rests on the ground?

    A baby kangaroo is grazing in a paddock 20 metres outside the National Park. He sees a ute full of noisy teenagers driving his way, and decides that the park might be safer than a farmers paddock. He bounds toward the fence, his first leap taking him 5 metres. Each successive leap is 20% less than the previous leap. How many leaps will it take the kangaroo to reach safety?

    I spill a 20 litre can of paint on the carpet. I’m in serious trouble. When it starts, it covers 200 square centimetres. In the first minute it has spread by 40 square centimetres, and is growing by 20% each minute. What is the final area of the stain in square centimetres?
  • 4. 
    I’m standing by a lake, skipping stones. My first skip is 5 metres, and each successive skip is 30% less. What is the total distance (to the nearest whole number) my stone will travel before it stops skipping?
