Posted by Tarah on Sunday, November 21, 2010 at 9:08pm.

A wooden artifact from an ancient tomb contains 70% of the carbon-14 that is present in living trees. How long ago was the artifact made? (The half-life of carbon-14 is 5730 years. Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

And....

An infectious strain of bacteria increases in number at a relative growth rate of 200% per hour. When a certain critical number of bacteria are present in the bloodstream, a person becomes ill. If a single bacterium infects a person, the critical level is reached in 24 hours. How long will it take for the critical level to be reached if the same person is infected with 9 bacteria? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
