in 1950, a research team digging near folsom, new mexico, found charred bison bones along with some leaf-shaped projectile points that had been made by a paleo-indian hunting culture. it was clear from the evidence that the bison had been coked and eaten by the makers of the points, so that carbon-14 dating of the bones made it possible for the researchers to determine when the hunters roamed North America. tests showed that the bones contained between 27% and 30% of their original carbon-14. use this information to show that the hunters lived roughly between 9000 BC and 8000 BC.
i know to use the equation y(t)= C*e^(kt)
where y represents the population at a given time, C represents the population, k represents the rate with respect to time, and t represents time
i also know that 1950, 27% and 30%, and 9000 and 8000 BC are important but i don't know what to do with them...especially since they are ranges and not exact numbers
