 Question 258093: A sample of bismuth-210 decayed to 33% of its original mass after 8 days. (a)Find the half-life of this element. (b)Find the mass remaining after 12 days Equation: m(t)= I*e^-rt I=Initial mass r=rate of decay t= time Since it is half-life, 1/2= e^-rt rate= (ln 2)/ h h= number of days to decay half of the mass I wasn't given h and r. Working with two variables is confusing. Click here to see answer by MRperkins(300)

 Question 259654: If log8 3 = 0.5283 and log8 5 = 0.7740, then what is the value of log8 45 ? Click here to see answer by nerdybill(6962)

 Question 259754: 4. You have \$760,000 in your bank account. The interest rate in your account is 5%. Solve for the following: a. How much interest will you accumulate if interest is compounded annually over the next five years? b. How much interest will you earn in your account over the next five years with continuous compounding? You can use a scientific calculator or the =Exp() function in Microsoft Excel. If you are crafty you can also find web pages that will do the calculations for you. Regardless, show your steps and your work. Click here to see answer by richwmiller(9143)

 Question 259642: 100=10 log(10^10 * x) I need to solve for x so I divided both sides by ten to get: 10= log(10^10 * x) What do I need to do next to solve for x? Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6287)

 Question 260017: Strontium–90 has a half-life of 29 years. How long will it take for an initial sample of 10 mg to decay to 1 mg? Do I use the formula A= Ao(1/2)^t/h If yes I come up with 1=10(1/2)^t/29 which ends up to be wrong. So how do I proceed? Please HELP!!! Click here to see answer by nerdybill(6962)

 Question 260352: HElp! could you please do this (I couldn't) Simplify: 9log(base 27)x - 4log(base 9)x The answer is log(base3)x but I don't know how to get that! Thank you. Click here to see answer by drk(1908)

 Question 259316: Theformula t=1/c [1n A-1n(A-N)] descibes the time t, in weeks, that it takes to achieve mastery of a portion of a task, where A is the maximum learning possible, N is the portion of the learning that is to be achieved, and c is a constant used to measure an individuals learning style. a. Express the formula so that the expression in brackets is written as a single logarithm. b. The formula is also used to determine how long it will take chimpanzees and apes to master a task. For example, a typical chimpanzee learning sign language can master a maximum of 65 signs. Use the form of the formula from part (a) to answer this question: How many weeks will it take a chimpanzee to master 30 signs if c for that chimp is 0.03? Click here to see answer by jsmallt9(3296)
