The half life

The half-life of a radioactive isotope is the time it takes for a quantity of the isotope to be reduced to half its initial mass. Starting with 145 grams of a radioactive isotope, how much will be left after 3 half-lives?

Correct answer:

m3 =  18.125 g

Step-by-step explanation:

m0=145 g q=1/2=21=0.5  m3=m0 q3=145 0.53=18.125 g
