I have the function A(t) with its differential equation of dA/dt= -kA
and the solution as a function: A(t)= Ao e^-kt.
I need to find the values of Ao and k in the equation A(t) before i
can continue with the rest of the question.
I think i've found the values for k but not 100% but have no idea
i found k= 1.2092x 10^-4
We can't help you until you tell us what your boundary conditions are.

Your k value is correct (well, I get .)
The physical meaning of is the amount of C-14 present at time 0. You can't determine that from the information you have given us.
