Scientists discover a fossil that contains 74% as much radioactive carbon, 14C, as does a living mammal. Assuming the half-life of 14 C to be about 5730 years, write the ODE representing the decay of carbon in the specimen and estimate its age.

where fc is the concentration of C14
right, I know the formula for half-life but i don't know how to get the ODE
thats the ODE
you want the process to get there?
yes please
Im too tired to explain how i got there, its a little bit complicated... srry mate
Alright, thanks anyways.
but do u know how to solve that?
