The answer is 3.125%.The relationship between the number of half-lives (n) and the amount of sample that remained (x) can be expressed as:n = 5to find x, we will change n in the equation with five:⇒ ⇒ ⇒ therefore, 3.125% of the radioactive species would be found as daughter material after five half-lives.
