**Carbon Dating** A fossil contains 4.06 grams of carbon 14. It is estimated that the fossil originally contained 46 grams of carbon 14. By calculating the amount left after 5,000 years, 10,000 years, …, 35,000 years, estimate the age of the sample to the nearest 5,000 years. (Refer to the formula for

To determine

**To calculate:** The age of the sample to the nearest *A* of carbon *t* is time in years if a fossil originally contained

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The formula for amount, *A* of carbon *t* is time in years if a fossil originally contained

**Calculation:**

Consider the original amount of carbon

Evaluate the *t* by substituting the values in the formula

Evaluate the value of amount of carbon

Evaluate the value of amount of carbon

Evaluate the value of amount of carbon
