### How much of one gram of radium-226 will remain unchanged after four half-lives?

After each half-life, half of the radium-226 will decay. Therefore, after four half-lives, 1/2^4 or 1/16th of the original gram of radium-226 will remain unchanged. This means that 1/16th of a gram, or 0.0625 grams, will still be unchanged after four half-lives.
