Let R represent the mass of radioactive R (an imaginary element) in grams, whose half-life is 16,000 years. The quantity of R present after t years is R(t)=14(1/2)t/16,000.

a)What is the initial quantity of R? (round to the nearest whole gram)


b)What is the quantity of R present after 12,000 years? (round to the nearest tenth of a gram)
