There are 24 hours in a day (approximately). Thus a half life of 36 hours is equal to 36/24 = 1.5 days.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How much of a 100.0 g of gold- 198 after 8.10 days if its half-life is 2.70 days?

If half-life is 2.7 days then 8.1 days is three half-lives. 12.5%, or 12.5g, of AU-198 would remain.


A particle element has a half-life of 27 days after 54 days have elapsed how much of the radioactive material is left is called?

54 days is 2x27. After one cycle of a half life (27 days), one-half of the substance would be left. After a second cycle of a half life (27 more days, for a total of 54), one-half of one-half is left, or one-fourth.

Generally 1 hour or less.


If a 100 g sample of radioactive element decays to 25 g in 4 days what is the half-life of the element?

The half-life of this element will be 2 days since it will lose half its mass in the first two days, so 100g to 50g, then half the resulting mass in the next two days (now totaling 4 days), so 50g to 25g in four days. So the half-life (in case the above was a bit rambling) is 2 days - at which point the element has lost half its original mass...which, of course, is what a half-life is :))
