To find the half life of iodine (i.e) t= ? when P=P02= 102=5 grams of iodine P=10e0.086t substitute P=5 in the above equation 5=10e0.086t Dividing both sides by 10 we get, 510=e0.086t
 e0.086t= 12
e0.086t=2 Taking log on both sides we get, 0.086t=loge2
 t= loge20.086= 0.693100.086=8.0598  8 Therefore it took 8 days for the iodine reduces to 5 grams

Modeling Luxury Home Sales
The following quadratic function in general form, S(t)=5.8t281.2t+1200 models the number of luxury home sales, S(t), in a major Canadian urban area, according to statistical data gathered over a 12 year period. Luxury home sales are defined in this market as sales of properties worth over $3 Million (inflation adjusted). In this case, t=0 represents 2000 and t=11 represents 2011.
