Radioactive substance decays so that after t years, the amount remaining, expressed as a percent of the original amount, is A(t)=100(1.6)^(-t).

a) Determine the function A’, which represent the rate of decay of the substance.

b) what is the half-life for this substance?

c) what is the rate of decay when half the substance has decayed?
