RM 18 000. Every January, the company increased his salary by 5% of the previous years
salary. Calculate
(a) his annual salary, to the nearest RM, for the year 2007. [3 marks]
th

for the years 2002 to 2007. [2 marks]
18. Amir drops a ball from a height of H cm above the floor. After the first bounce, the ball
reaches a height of H1 cm, where H1 = 0.8H. After the second bounce, the ball reaches a height of
H2 cm, where H2 = 0.8H1. The ball continues bouncing in this way until it stops.
Given that H= 200 cm, find
(a) the number of bounces when the maximum height of the ball from the floor is less than 50 cm
for the first time. [4 marks]
(b) the total distance, in cm, traveled by the ball until it stops. [2 marks]
