The cloth shroud from around a mummy is found to have a carbon-14 activity of 8.1 disintegrations per minute per gram of carbon as compared with living organisms that undergo 15.2 disintegrations per minute per gram of carbon.

From the half-life for carbon-14 decay, 5715 yr, calculate the age of the shroud.
