A certain radioactive isotope has a half-life of 11 days. If one is to make a table showing the half-life decay of a sample of this isotope from 32 grams to 1 gram; list the time (in days, starting with t = 0) in the first column and the mass remaining (in grams) in the second column, which type of sequence is used in the first column and which type of sequence is used in the second column?

    The first column would be an arithmetic sequence, while the second column would be a geometric sequence.

    Changing by adding a constant is arithmetic. Changing by multiplying a constant is geometric.
