can someone please help me?

Having studied the data for patterns and trends, you should now be able to draw some conclusions about how knowing the half-life of the element Lokium would help you determine the absolute age of rock in which this element is found. In a paragraph, create an imaginary example of finding a given amount of Lokium and DOL in a rock, and then determining the absolute age of that rock. Assume that each trial represents 1,000 years.

  1. DOL is the Lokium decay product?

    half-life is the time it takes for half of the Lokium atoms to decay into DOL atoms

    elapsed time = {log[(L atoms) / (L + D atoms)] / log(1/2)} * (half-life L)
