What might explain this? (c) When can you be certain this equation is no longer valid? Half-life In Problems 71 and 72, use the fact that the quantity of a radioactive substance after t years is given by q ‫ ؍‬q0(2 ؊t͞k), where q0 is the original amount of radioactive material and k is its half-life (the number of years it takes for half the radioactive substance to decay). 71. The half-life of strontium-90 is 25 years. Find the amount of strontium-90 remaining after 10 years if q0 ϭ 98 kg. 72.

Perform additions and subtractions from left to right. ● EXAMPLE 3 Order of Operations Evaluate the following. (a) Ϫ4 ϩ 3 (b) Ϫ42 ϩ 3 (c) (Ϫ4 ϩ 3)2 ϩ 3 (d) 6 Ϭ 2(2 ϩ 1) Solution (a) Ϫ1 (b) Note that with Ϫ42 the power 2 is applied only to 4, not to Ϫ4 (which would be written (Ϫ4)2). 2 The Real Numbers ● ● Checkpoint True or false: 4.
