4. The mass of a radioactive substance follows a
continuous exponential decay model, with a
decay rate parameter of per day. Find the
half-life of this substance (that is, the time it takes
for one-half the original amount in a given sample
of this substance to decay).
Note: This is a continuous exponential decay
model.
Do not round any intermediate computations, and
round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

14. A manufacturer cuts squares from the corners of a rectangular piece
of sheet metal that measures centimeters by centimeters (see
Figure 1). The manufacturer then folds the metal upward to make an
open-topped box (see Figure 2). Letting represent the side-lengths
(in centimeters) of the squares, use a graphing calculator to find the
value of that maximizes the volume enclosed by this box. Then
give the maximum volume. Round your responses to two decimal
places.
15.
Solve for .
16.
Suppose that is invested at an interest
rate of per year, compounded
continuously. After how many years will the
initial investment be doubled?
Do not round any intermediate computations,
and round your answer to the nearest
hundredth.
