    The half life of carbon 14 is 5700 years. So If a fossil is 5700 years old then half of the carbon-14 is left. I think this may be it! I tried!

    OK, Jorge, this is very similar to the math question I asked you to post in mathematics a few moments ago...

    But that is pretty much a biology question. well more like Chemistry

    It's more of a chemistry question than math or biology. 1 half life: 100% ---> 50% 2nd half life: 50% ---> 25% 2 half lives.
