Dinosaur fossils are too old to be reliably dated using carbon-14, which has a half-life of about 5730 years. Suppose we had a 66 million year old dinosaur fossil. How much of the living dinosaur's ^{14}C would be remaining today? (Round your answer to five decimal places.)

%

Suppose the minimum detectable amount is 0.5%. What is the maximum age of a fossil that we could date using^{14}C? (Round your answer to the nearest integer.)
