Problem: The curve to the right shows the radioactive decay of a particular sample of a nucleus called Element A. A particular nucleus survives for the first five hours.(a) What's the probability that particular nucleus of Element A will decal between hours 5 and 10? (b) What is the probability that particular nucleus of element A will decay between 5 and 20 hours?
