How Far Does the Ball Travel

I have a puzzle of the day Calender - and here is today's puzzler.
If an elastic ball is dropped from the Leaning Tower of Pisa at a height of 179 feet from the ground, and on each rebound the ball rises exactly one tenth of its previous height, what distance will it travel before it comes to rest?
I have an answer and the calender has an answer and the two answers are not the same. If you want to see the answers click on the comments box and then tell me which of us is right, me or the calender?
