The following functions describe the concentration of medicine in their blood streams,C, with respect to time, T, in hours.

**Do you mean:**

$\displaystyle Evan:C=80\left(\frac12\right)^{\frac12 \bold{\color{red}T}} $

$\displaystyle Chelsea:C=40\left(\frac12\right)^{\frac13\bold{\co lor{red} T}}$

** The exponents are actually 1/2 and 1/3 respectively, I'm not sure how to show a fraction in the exponent here.**

A.) Who had to take the higher dosage. Explain.

B.) Whose system got rid of the medication at a faster rate? Explain.
