**DrBob222**, Saturday, November 5, 2011 at 6:42pmk = 0.693/t

_{1/2}

ln(No/N) = kt

Substitute into equation 1 and solve for k, the substitute into equation 2 and solve for N. No will be 18, 47.5, 1008 years.

**DrBob222**, Saturday, November 5, 2011 at 8:02pmSo N = amount left.

% = (N/No)*100 = ?
