Basketball and tennis ball!

A tennis ball with (small) mass m2m_2 sits on top of a basketball with (large) mass m1m_1. The bottom of the basketball is a height hh above the ground, and the bottom of the tennis ball is a height h+dh + d above the ground. The balls are dropped. To what height HH does the tennis ball bounce?

(Note: Work in the approximation where m1m_1 is much larger than m2m_2, and assume that the balls bounce elastically.)
