Homework Help: Alg2

Posted by Rock on Tuesday, December 6, 2011 at 9:50pm.

An anthropologist finds there is so little remaining Carbon-14 in a prehistoric bone that instruments cannot measure it. This means that there is less than 0.5% of the amount of Carbon-14 the bones would have contained when the person was alive. How long ago did the person die? Round your answer to the nearest thousand. (22,000, etc)
