A certain radioactive isotope has a half-life of 5 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?

Well, do it. Let's see the table.

There is no table, this is a geometric sequence question

  • tkhunny
You are to create the table. Up in the problem statement... "if one is to make a table" Yes, the second column should be a geometric sequence. That's part of the answer. You don't HAVE to create the table, but it may help answer the question.

Oh yeah sorry haha so it would be: 0,1,2,3,4 32,....,1 and then I dont know the rest of the mass amounts

What kind of sequence is in the first column?
anonymous
  • anonymous
arithmetic? cause you add 5

and the second column is geometric

Oh wow i guess i overcomplicate things too much
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
Nope. It was a thinking shift. ALWAYS look for different ways to think about it. Over-complicate? Over-simplify? Bah!! No need to assign value judgments to different thinking.
