Decay problems
A bouncing ball loses one-third of its height every bounce. The ball was originally dropped from a height of 2.7 metres. Work out the height the ball reaches after the 6th bounce. Give your answer to 2 decimal places.
Growth and Decay

Bright Spark:
You are going to be given money every day for a week. You have two choices about how to be given the money:
(i) On Monday you are given £100, and then every day you get £10 more than the previous day.
(ii) On Monday you are given £10, and then every day you get double the amount from the previous day.

(a) How much more do you get by taking option 2 than option 1?
(b) How much would the first amount on Monday have to be for option 1 to get you more than option 2?
(c) Can you find starting values for Monday that result in the same amount for both options?
