Dear sougata

Total distance travel by ball is

S = 120 + 2*120*.8 + 2*120*(.8)2  + 2*120(.8)3 +.................∞

i have multiplied by 2 because ball travells two time first when ball move from flour to vertically upward and second when it come back  to flour.

S = 120 + 2*120*.8[ 1 + .8 + (.8)2+......∞]  in bracket we have infinite geometric progression

=120 + 192[ 1/(1-0.8)]

=120 + 192[5]

=1080   cm
