A = (ax)(10)^-kt

ax = 500

t= 10

A = 450

i got it down to 450 = 5000^-10k - June 12th 2007, 10:31 PMqbkr21Re:
RE:

Even if you set this equation equal to zero there still isn't a solution...

its a regents question, so im pretty sure there is a solution and why would it be equal to 0 when its equal to 450
