Geometric series?

A ball is dropped from an initial height and allowed to bounce repeatedly. On the first bounce (one up-and-down motion), the ball reaches a height of 32 inches. On each successive bounce, the ball reaches 75% of its previous height. What is the total vertical distance that the ball travels in 10 bounces? (Do not include the initial height from which the ball is dropped.)
